K3 and DFA 150-450

The above photo was from my deck..... so I thought I'd go get the K-1 and take the same shot (roughly) to see how they would compare.... same settings....same processing..... same end crop.... all at 450mm

K3

K-1

Clearly I need to be quicker! Anyway.... maybe next time.... ;one tree branches look better with K-1.... but who knows..... sample group of one is what it is...... meaningless!
I actually laughed out load when I scrolled down!!!

But, some really good photos!

Really nice shot. How close were you to that bird? Looks like you could pet him
Thank you. I was only about 30 feet from the bird. It was a fledgling that had just flown from the nest maybe 100 feet way and it didn't seem to think it could fly away from me.

I love the pose of the second egret. Here's a few of my favorites.
A little dinner...


A leisurely scratch....


Fluff up the feathers a little...


one final stretch....

Cedar waxwings are one of the prettiest birds. I can never get an image I'm pleased with. I envy you!

The IQ standard here has gotten outrageously high--this should fix that.

Dave, he reminds me of a crow in a Disney cartoon - thanks for the chuckle

Ferruginous Hawk

here is a sequence--- not of the greatest quality as I was trying to use an improvised support with a fa600 plus a 1.4x extender.
but I was interested in the the way that this large bird commenced flying.
