Hungry House Finch
Lens: Pentax DA 55-300 PLM + 1.4X TC Camera: Pentax KP ISO: 400 Shutter Speed: 1/125s Aperture: F9.5

Normally I see an American Robin or two at the bush outside my den window. This morning I saw this House Finch. Interestingly to me, although I think of Robins as being fairly comfortable around Humans, they will take a berry or two, then fly off to a tree. This House Finch seems to have eaten his fill before leaving.

Thank you for your comment.

I was in more of a hurry than I needed to be - I was expecting him to leave in a hurry as the Robins typically do - otherwise I would have noticed that the shutter speed was lower that I usually use for a situation like this. I use 'TAv' mode much more often with the KP than I usually used with the K-30, because I have much trust in performance I am getting from higher ISO values.
