Turnabout is Fair Play
Lens: Pentax DA 55-300 PLM Camera: Pentax K-30 ISO: 800 Shutter Speed: 1/250s Aperture: F6.3 
Posted By: reh321, 11-26-2020, 11:52 AM

Our family celebrated Thanksgiving via FaceTalk today. While the ladies gabbed, I grabbed my K-30 and took several photos out the window. The day is fairly dark here today, so my 55-300mm PLM made sense today {even though I can use it only fully open on that camera}, even though at 800 ISO {the highest I'm ready to push it} things were darker than I would prefer. For awhile, the Squirrels had to wait for the Blue Jays to tire before they could eat at the Squirrel feeder {the Jays really like the whole peanuts I provided on this holiday}.

Thank you for your comment.

I had less control than usual since my K-30 has to use the lens wide-open, so the peanuts show up poorly, but it does show two birds. Having two birds was completely by accident, but I figured I might as well use it since I had it.
