Some of the 1st shots with my new K5
Lens: Tamron 70-200 Camera: Pentax K5 Photo Location: Salado Texas ISO: 50 
Posted By: ggeorge11, 05-07-2011, 10:16 AM

I went to Salado creek Winery Last night to enjoy a glass (or 3) of their Salado Sweet White wine. Then for a walk around the river to try and get a shot or 2. I was surprised O could get this heron at about 200 yards away with the Tamron 70-200 full zoom. I also got a couple of deer shots. The K5 has a learning curve. I hope I get better with it. I also love this 100% crop of a stink bug. CC alway welcome.

Thanks- I think once I get by the learning curve I will feel better. I just added a 3rd party grip to it, and overall I like that. So now it is time to get in the menus, figure it out and play some more!
