Flying out is much harder to capture
Coming or going, you shoot rings around us Ken - fantastic work as usual.

Always wanted to capture the back view of the White-throated Kingfisher. These two was taken around Nov 2015.

Have a look....


My Pentax Forum "Porch Birds" collection went over 1000 images,
Porch_birds Slideshow by Norm_Head | Photobucket

I've posted the link to the slide show, but I can't watch more than 200 images without dying of boredom. Birds are exciting for 5 minutes, then it's time to move on to something else.

I think I may have to start breaking these up, year by year.

My third attempt at getting some pics of Whimbrels that have been passing through over the last week or so:



And then they were gone:



A shame as I don't like to flush these tired migrants. I blame the loud K-r Shutter! - will be picking up my K3 from the repair place today.

But that's the thing with the thread, it shows you what people who use the same equipment you are, are doing. You don't have the excuse "well he's got a better camera than me" or any other excuse. It just inspires you to get better.

A few more bird shots from this morning handheld K3 DA*300 w/DA 1.4 TC. I don't believe I cropped any of these, if I did it was very minimal. I also get bored with my bird shots but it is practice for when I can get out in the field. I also would like to find some A* longer than what I have but better IQ than my 150-500 Sigma... Will have to wait a little while until the $ build back up after springing for the 3 DA*'s i just got I am in the market if anyone knows of some good glass ??

I completely agree and certainly have been inspired and hungry for getting to know what it takes to make these amazing images ! I also want to thank the folks for sharing their knowledge and images !

As of this moment, 21,889 replies, 17,922 likes handed out, out in this thread. And there are a lot of folks like myself that are really cheap with the "likes". An 82% likes to posts percentage.

K-3 sample shots 71%
K-5 sample (no more tests) 18%

Among threads that have run at least a year, it's the king.
Although "post you K-1 images is running at a whopping 132%. The question is can they keep it up. New camera enthusiasm is running rampant over there.

The other amazing thing about this thread is it's 21,880 posts. You can spend a lot of time lurking around in this thread.
