One less toe to tap !
Lens: DFA 150-450 Camera: K-3ii Photo Location: Nisqually , Wa ISO: 4000 Shutter Speed: 1/800s Aperture: F5.6

This riparian area can have small mixed groups of small birds that forage trees and bushes . Sometimes a feather or this little guy hints of predator activity .

A flash may help make some images practical but these damp conditions are bothersome but a plastic bag could be jerry rigged .

And a little less grip. Nice catch. Nice detail and natural colors in this image.

I really like what you did with those damp conditions!
And the bird doesn't seem too much bothered by the weather.
(I got a shot of a turkey that had lost a whole lower leg last week; I didn't like that image very much, though it was well taken by the equipment.)
I guess these birds just live on and make the best of it.
Anyway, good image!

Conditions here are consistently damp this time of year but the results are worth the trouble of learning how to cope .

Adversity is common as our friend here illustrates . This eagle sees well enough to fly and land in trees .
Your kind comments are appreciated .

Terrific capture pichaser. The details and colors are outstanding. Animals are amazingly resilient and adaptable.

As difficult subjects go for me birds can be very uncooperative and completely willing to be frustating but they can be exceptionally rewarding too. Your kind words are a blessing.

Great capture of the eagle. It is amazing how birds and other wildlife can cope with injuries. My granddaughter saw a hawk with only one leg a few days ago. She said it seemed OK when it flew off. I enjoy your images.

That shot of the eagle really tells a story!
Wish we knew for sure what the whole story really is.
(Or maybe I don't want to know!!!)

We need to depict reality if we are honest about wildlife .

I used to use a flash, with my *istD, but fell away from it as PTTL is not as good, especially since sigma TCs didnít compensate for aperture, and Pentax/Hoya/Ricoh never seemed to want to accommodate other vendors even though they didnít have a TC in their own mix for a very long time.

I think on and off about flash, but to be honest with the High ISO capabilities of the latest cameras, it seems much less important. Your shot is evidence of this

You are right about new capabilities but improvement can be a goal to strive for .
