"Pretty as a picture"
Lens: Pentax 18-250 Camera: K5IIs Photo Location: Saugus Ma. ISO: 800 
Posted By: charliezap, 02-19-2016, 02:11 PM

A couple times a week my new friend has been showing up looking for a quick bite around my feeders. To see him from only 10 ft away is quite a treat. He likes to pose for pictures.I wonder if I can hand feed him?--charliezap

You definitely captured one proud bird, nice shot!
I don't think hand feeding's a good idea...it may hurt!

You might end up feeding him a hand.

He loves to hang around for snacks but never seems to get one.--charliezap

Such nice shots, I totally blew some hawk photos last year. There is not a sad face icon big enough to describe that. May I ask if the first photo rendered in 'watercolor' filter or a Topaz program? Just asking since I have recently bought some Topaz programs and PSE. I am such a noob at it. I seem to be better at the Topaz than the many many things I need to learn for photo shop.

Thanks for asking.--The effects in the "painting" was done with the on board filters in the K5IIs except for the frame which was added by Paint Shop Pro 8.-charliezap.

Good captures Charlie. I don't mind any of the treatments, no particular favourite.

That last photo is especially appealing, Charlie. You're using a lens which was recommended to me as a good one for cyclotouring because of the wide focal range. In your hands you make it shine.
