Lens: Sigma 100-300 Camera: Pentax K-r Photo Location: Nevada 
Posted By: gifthorse, 04-03-2012, 04:59 PM

I liked the images of the Northern flicker someone posted a few days ago so I was excited to see this out the kitchen window this morning.

I figured it was time to take the K-r out. A muskrat posed for a few.

and a Red-tailed hawk made a fly-by.

Which Sigma 100-300 are you using, becuase these are nice and sharp, great capture on all shots.

Thanks for the kind words. The lens is a Sigma 100-300 DL Super. I'm pleased with the focusing speed and IQ for such a rather inexpensive lens. I looked at several 300mm zooms and just liked the color and sharpness of this lens.

Lens is good, photographer is better! A very nice series showcasing your local wildlife, and your artistic eye. Personal favorite would be the 2nd muskrat photo - just entering the water...
