Just keeping it simple.
Lens: 18-250 Pentax Camera: K5IIs Photo Location: Saugus Ma. ISO: 100 Shutter Speed: 1/125s Aperture: F8 
Posted By: charliezap, 05-15-2015, 05:57 PM

Usually when I set out to photograph my little buddy I'll use one of my better lenses.He was quite active as darkness was just about there.I grabbed the camera with the Pentax 18-250(work horse) lens and stood less than 2ft from the feeder and grabbed this shot with the K5II's on board flash.--charliezap

Very nice "grab shot" Charlie, that 18-250 is a very decent lens for a long zoom. I really like the PP work as well.

great colors and clarity on the feathers Charlie. It's nice to have a buddy that will pose for you.

Yep, I agree, great shot! Otis was looking over my shoulder and commented that "it's just another useless bird wasting oxygen and eating available food.....can't Charlie ever shoot some handsome squirrels?"

That's when I reminded him that Charlie has no time to shoot squirrels, he runs a Giant Corporation producing the finest Squirrel Helper on earth!

You guys need to try some, it makes even an old tough squirrel like Otis into a tasty tender meal! The "Rupert" version is my favorite.....spicy but not too hot...just right.


Regards!....I think I've seen the last of Otis for today!

Thanks all--Imagine the shots that I would get if the HB's never let up at the feeder.I have one or two that show up ever 20 minutes or so and I'm thankful for that.--charliezap
