Won #1 in photo challenge


The winning shot was taken with K5 and DA*300 when I was a newbie testing the lens .
Ken - another well deserved honor. Congratulations. Your posts on the Forum are among the consistent highlights here.

Yes. His sense of color, composition, simplicity and light are always first rate. He can really make that Sigma dance.

I imagine most everyone in N. America has seen this bird whether they knew what it was or not.

Dark-eyed Junco...

Very secretive hard to find bird at least in my area. Loves thick wet thickets and bogs.
I had to take a canoe deep into the Upper Mississippi Wildlife refuge and camp out over night on an island to get this pic.
Not rare but loves wild remote secluded spots where it can be left alone by birders and photographers like me.

Lincoln's Sparrow...

Interesting you 2008 *ist Junco image...

Resolution wise things have improved dramatically...




Going back to my old *ist images, it's amazing how little I find useful.

I've only seen on once, but I didn't have to camp out...just walk in wet grass at Derby Hill Bird Observatory...

Do you mean your long isD shots are nearly as good as your K3 shots ?

Here are a couple of birds in flight taken with my K-5/Sigma 300mm f2.8 EX DG.
This is the best Swift picture that I could manage ,they are so fast.

And damn good at that - BIF shots like yours are completely out of the question with my gear.
Different strokes for different folks.

Well done.

Another really masterful bird image. Love towhees, the way they go scruffling through the leaves, but rarely see one any more.

Yea. I hear them a lot more then see them but they are around.
Here's the female Towhee - a lot more elegant then the male I think.
