Sometimes lucky I managed to shoot 2 birds (focused) within a frame but this family shot has to be the luckiest to have 3 in 1.

Howdy, guys! I've been a long-time lurker in this thread, but even though I've had 300's for nearly as long as I've had a Pentax, never really thought about posting here.

A few days ago I acquired an A 400/5.6, I hope y'all don't mind me joining in on the fun!

first pigeon, too

Wilson's Snipe and Wilson's Plover, cross-posted from "Wildlife" (both with the DA 55-300mm). Does anyone have any more Wilson's birds to add (warbler, phalarope, petrel, bird of paradise...)?

Went to my closest local spot, less than a mile and a half from my house. Light was terrible and everything was way out of range. Oh well, better days are coming...

Only interesting birds were a pair if Ring-necked Ducks. Of course they were swimming away and around a corner as soon as I arrived.
