My mother calls these flying rats, and wishes they would disappear, but every once and a while they at least provide a photo opportunity.

It is a well detailed shot. I have a Pentax K-5 IIs and know that it is capable of excellent detail.

I plan to upgrade to the K3-iii after prices settle down, but I have been very happy with the K5iis. Even my K10D produces great results.

That is one great shot of this wild turkey!!

I also have a K5 and use it a lot in low light conditions ... performs better than my K3 in that domain.
I too plan to upgrade to the K3 III which apparently will have the "best of both worlds" (whatever that means).

Congratulations on owning that lens. Some of us can only dream of such wonderfulness. Aren't wild turkeys super skittish? Was it hard to stalk?

They are, but these ones are used to people being around. I ran to where I knew they would pop out and was ready when they got there. I counted 11 Tom's a few days earlier, all from their kitchen window.

Here's one I took last year, from my truck, at a nearby field. This was just before he mounted her.
