Thanks! I have to say I really like the lens, if it was not for the size and weight it would be on my camera 90% of the time.

Nice capture and composition. Lovely Double Collared. Did you have to crop, or was this how close you got?

And welcome to the forum btw. Not too may ZA Pentax members, but getting to reasonable numbers.

Nice shot! A much more colourful bird than the Australian species.

Hi Kevin, I did have to crop it because there was a distracting stick in the bottom of the frame,but it was not by much.

And also thanks! I hope there will be many more people who see the light soon and get into Pentax!
