K-x, 55-300. Blue Jay on our wires. I am learning how to use the 55-300; nature, so far, hasn't had the patience to wait for the tripod.

I'm surprised that the second one seems so soft despite the shutter speed- do you think the focus was slightly off? This is definitely a good start, though!

The first one captures a lot of beautiful detail. Nice going. I like the curve of his neck, too - nice capture.
Thanks for sharing.

Second image was actually shot first and softness probably due to hand-shake. For the first image, as I recall, I braced myself against house wall. Thanks for looking and commenting!

A good start indeed that's a fine lens looks like you'll put it to good use.
