Nice set! You have berries on the ivy already?

Thanks! Yes, the berries seem to be already ripe, but that's nothing special if Wikipedia is right: "The flowers are greenish-yellow with five small petals; they are produced in umbels in autumn to early winter and are very rich in nectar. The fruit is a greenish-black, dark purple or (rarely) yellow berry 510 mm diameter with one to five seeds, ripening in late winter to mid-spring."

This adorable young bear briefly visited my yard a couple weeks ago. The bear's coat may be shedding a bit earlier than usual due to the warm winter - and also young'uns often have lighter fur color than adults - but by fall it will be a deep, lustrous black.

K-5 II + A400/5.6

I love owls too! ...and I love my Bigma 50-500. I have hundreds of shots handheld at 1/125 or lower with plenty decent results. My current Bigma is HSM OS and I use the SR on my K1 instead...it is superior to the Sigma OS. Same with my K5IIs...found SR better and faster there too.

I loved your shot... I think it is mostly a matter of processing. I prefer it like this.....hope you don't mind.

As a general guide, I find that 1/200 will get you a decent handheld Bigma shot most of the time. Anything faster is gravy, and I'll take it when I can!
Thanks Rupert for the pp, it looks great . Cheers

The sky in the second image makes it something special. From the time it was first introduced (which I remember), the 400 f6.3 Spiratone was known to be one of those lenses that is far better than it had any right to be at the price. I believe the basic design/formula was sold under a variety of brand names other that Spiratone..

Gorgeous !
Thanks Guys for the encouragement words, poorly yielded with the sigma 150-500mm HSM handheld, looks like a good lens to capture the speedy movement should be the legendary DA* 300mm

I seldom mess with the work of others...but that was such a good shot and it processed so easy. Glad you didn't mind!

Best Regards!

Here are some shots of Meadow Pipits with food for their young K-5/FA*600mm f4 ED [IF] on a Kirk window mount. Taken from the drivers seat of a car

He did it with a Nikon, so I don't think it qualifies
