2017-01-15- day in Algoqnuin Park.
Lens: Tamron 300 and 1.4 TC, FDA 28-105, A-400 and F1.7 TC Camera: K-1, K-3 Photo Location: Algonquin Park, Ontario 
Posted By: normhead, 01-17-2017, 08:23 AM

At the Visitor's centre, A-400 and F 1.7x AF Adapter and K-1 with 28-105.
Opeongo Road images, Tamron 300 most with the HD DA 1.4 TC.

There is a new feeder at the Visitor's Centre, it's very popular with the grosbeaks.. you can see it in the middles of the photo hanging in that weird alcove kind of architectural feature. The older feeders are below it centre left at the bottom. K-1 nd 28-105)


Pictures from the Visitor's Centre deck....

Far out in the field a Fox expresses his displeasure that a fisher won't leave the road killed moose carcass dragged there by the park rangers, for your viewing pleasure. (A-400 and 1.7x without a tripod = no hope a clear image.)


You can check what's happening there live, although there's been very little activity this morning.

Waiting their turn in the nearby trees.




In front of the Visitor's Centre..


Photographers in the Spruce Bog Trail parking lot. I wonder if that guy on the left has noticed all those women have bigger lenses (not that size matters) . Those Sigma an Tamron 150-600s are getting to be real popular. In this group , approx. 4 of 12 shooters were using them, and all women. (you dudes keep that in mind next time you complain about the weight. Not only were they carrying them, they were using them hand held.) In my picture 2 of the 5 had them. The tall skinny girl's is unseen behind her legs hanging on some kind of lanyard.


Spruce Bog Trail ice.


Over at Opeongo road, the up close and personal viewing site. (Tamron 300 and HD DA 1.4 and K-1)

This first one shows the Vignetting caused by the HD DA 1.4 FF on the full frame. In some images it makes a difference, but on many, it is non-existent. Especially if you crop at all.






A young Pine Marten has learned that bird seed is a good dietary supplement, and that birds and squirrels that come to this parking lot for bird seed can make an excellent main meal.

End of the day, Brewer Lake


Mild weather and bright sun makes for great days in the park.

Thanks for that shot Norm, I have been second guessing myself on a HD 1.4 purchase in case I do go FF in the future, looks like its compatible and will now cost me some $$$$. I hope you enjoy spending my money ? lol

He's a cute little guy. I suspect he's a juvenile, he's definitely small.
