South to Niagara Falls, which is as far south as I go these days, since the country of my birth insists I now have a passport, not a birth certificate to cross the border. It used to be they couldn't keep me out. I think the new regs were passed just for me. Someone at the State Department was assigned the task "How do we keep Norm Head out?" "I know, we'll make him apply for something, he'll never get around to that." It's worked so far.

Caught this guy this PM
K-1 + FA*250-600
Light was really low and the bird was pretty far, but the high ISO performance of the Pentax K-1 helped a lot!
If you look closely, you'll notice that there is a twig in the bird's claws. It's because he just captured a rodent, and he's flying to a post to eat its meal.

That's a wonderful shot Weevil - I look forward to the opportunity to come even close to getting Short-eared Owl shots like that.

Another of the series of the Short-Eared Owl
This Owl is in approach mode to capture a rodent.

In this This shot, I unfortunately switched to the wrong mode (Program Mode, or "P"), and speed was really slow compared to what I used to use: 1/500s, ISO400 f/5.6, but it came out not that bad finally! I like the blur on the wings...

K-1 + FA*250-600 @ 600mm

You're making me want to upgrade to the K1 and pair it up w/the 500 + a TC of sorts!

3 winters later and I finally get to check off Bohemian Waxwings from my short life list

Sharing some capturing of the Red-Legged crake on yesterday. Pictures were shots under extremely low light condition. Taken with my K70 + Sigma 150-500mm HSM. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year 2017 to everyone here!!

I think I like the third photo best of the three. The second one's green rock detracts from the image for me. Thanks for posting.
