Pentax Photo Gallery (PPG) entries
Posted By: Buddha Jones, 12-27-2007, 11:50 AM

Hello all! I am going to make this a sticky post in hopes that I can get all of you who have submitted pictures to the Pentax Photo Gallery (PPG) and have had them accepted please post a couple of them here and please link back to your gallery so we can see your work. We have so many incredible photogs on this site I am curious to see what Pentax considers your best work.

Thanks!

Nice work, Oren. I love birds and this particular species is really so colorful.
You caught them so well. Freddy

Timo, aren't those woodpeckers rare. Love the shots and the Kingfisher
is specially nice with its cool bokeh. Freddy
P.s. I voted for the woodpecker but don't recall the kingfisher.

Oren and Timo, beautiful shots. Love the bird photos.

I had two more admitted, a sepia version of my B&W droplet spangled maple leaf, and a mayfly (Stenonema).

Thanks folks,
Glad you like them.
I don't know how rare the kingfisher is, but it's much larger in person than I had imagined it would be from pics I had seen of one. The woodpecker is huge too - about the size of a crow. The kingfisher is probably about a foot head to tail.

Thanks for identifying that Mayfly - I saw one here and found it very strange - didn't know what it was. They're big too - about three inches or so - strange creature.

Timo, I think the woodpecker is called a pileated woodpecker.
Tamia, great shots. The mayfly is something I haven't seen much of in
the forums. Nice detail and coloration under the water.

I see a lot I gave the thumbs up to. Fact is, all of them on this page I gave a thumbs up to.

And yes, freddy, that is a pileated woodpecker. We have one I've seen down here (way down south) but only rarely. He came in, in early spring but I missed him.

Tim, the piliated and the belted kingfisher are really stunning. We have camped at a park in SC where you have to cover the side mirrors on your vehicle because, during mating season, the piliated will see his reflection and your mirror becomes history. They have one strong beak as you can imagine. Now if that was an ivory-billed woodpecker you would have a million dollar photo because they are supposedly extinct.
Enoeske, stunning flower shots.
Oren, love the birds.
Tamia, that leave is a winner no matter what you do to it. Love both versions.

Sorry, yes, it's a pileated woodpecker. Not all that rare around my area. Ive seen them in 4 or 5 different places so far. This one was drilling in that tree right in my front yard! We saw both the male and female here working . Hoping maybe they were making a nest, but no luck... Haven't seen them back for a while.

You're welcome, Tim. I used to tie fishing flies, and this mayfly is very common around these parts. The artificial fly is called the March Brown, and the real thing is fairly large. I'd say the body is about 1.5" and quite chunky.

Thanks, Freddy. If you squint, you can see the discarded exoskeleton in the water in the lower left corner of the photo. This one had just emerged.

Thanks, Susan. I hadn't heard that about the pileated WPs hammering the mirrors. We used to live in a cabin with metal flashing on the roofline, and every spring the yellow bellied sapsuckers would hammer on it before dawn, then look around to see if anyone had noticed.

I'll say! I believe I read that someone was convinced they lived in a remote woods in the deep south, but can't recall where.

Kingfisher

Hi timo4352,

I remember that Kingfisher and I voted for it in the gallery. I hope to get that close to one like that. I remember staring at it and noted it has great detail. Your lens is sharp enough and I thought it was a 400mm lens, is that correct?
