Nice catch. Those murderous devils sure are pretty.

Ooh using the pentax/oly combo too.

Thanks, lens displaying purple fringing around beak, but renders beautifully. There's also a special guest mosquito on flower.

$85 lens

Purple fringing is usally not that hard to remove with software, if it really bothers you

Technically imperfect, but emotionally close to perfection.

Due to the multi camera mechanized technique I use, my cameras are usually positioned around the feeder in a manner that 1or 2 cameras of the 4 cameras (as in this capture) are positioned in a technically imperfect manner. By purposely doing this allows me to capture perspectives I wouldn't have attempted otherwise. The entire image was prepped as shown. The flower pot with flower was placed approximately 3 feet from the feeder and I prefocused on the flower with prediction the bird will fly in the predetermined zone. I have very few technically correct images. This is a full resolution image with no crop.

Outstanding capture Lawrence! I like the way you set these up and shoot wide open so that they capture the birds in a more artistic fashion rather than purely technical.

Quoting the passed painter, Bob Ross:

"We don't make mistakes, we have happy accidents."

I shot wide open on this camera to blur out the yard furniture on my deck. There's actually an industrial push broom on my deck that I didn't bother to remove due to I suspected the 1.8 would deem it insignificant - allow me to position that camera at my desired position.
