Very nicely rendered Bob.
Effective use of image dimensions (a vertical pano is not oft used but it seems to work here).

I got to within 5 foot of the nest, the parents had observed us in our campsite the last couple of days and were very relaxed when we approached. thanks for looking. Bob

Nice view with those three pidgin heads looking towards you pointing a camera at them. Considering the high ISO there is quite al lot of detail there.

thanks Remco, the K-5 seems to handle the higher ISO nicely. Bob

Hey, thanks so much for the kind comments. It was amazing to watch the little ones grow and then all at once, they were gone. I got those pics as they were leaving the nest and then flew away. Sort of cool to have the time to sit and watch nature at its finest. Bob
