Birds
Lens: DAL 55-300 Camera: K5 Photo Location: Texas 
Posted By: Brazeal, 06-26-2013, 07:43 AM

Just a few bird shots that I've taken over the last few weeks while getting accustomed to the new DAL 55-300 and trying my luck with AF-C. I'm fighting the LBA urge to buy a Bigma for reach or DA*300 for better IQ, and I'm also fighting the urge to buy a D800. Decisions...decisions...

It seems like the interesting birds only appear when I do not have my K-5 on me! How do they know?!

Thanks for looking.

Mike

That is a great second shot and anyone who can come close to getting off a shot of a swallow in flight deserves to give in to his LBA.

Thanks Susan. Yes, swallows are so fast and unpredictable in their flight patterns, and capturing a sharp image with good exposure without blowing out the sky is a challenge. I should probably try a flash and maybe buy a better beamer. I feel that I will soon succumb to LBA or FF mania. Lol.

Thanks Larry. I cheated on the first one and replaced the sky. I hope it is not too noticeable, but I like it.
