Arctic Ground Squirrels live in underground colonies. They're hyperactive and skittish, but if you sit on the ground and wait things can get interesting after a while.

Black headed grosbeak couple

In the back yard, a few hours apart, we were visited by a black headed grosbeak couple. Momma arrived in sunshine, poppa was just a few minutes ago after sunset. Both pix were severely cropped and taken through a double pane glass door with pollen on it. (The ponderosa pines are shedding). I'm really pleased with the results from this combo, considering the cost and results. Both are jpegs out of the camera, minor exposure adjustments and crop only.


K-3, DA 55-300, TAV 500/f 8.0 ISO 1600 for the female, TAV 320/f 8.0 ISO 1600 for the male.

First morning after purchasing a decidedly used DA L 55-300mm, a scruffy looking Robin decided to pose for me. Think I am going to like this lens!

I upgraded from the L version to get Quick Shift, but other than that I had no qualms about using the L version.

Cross posted from the BIF thread.

I saw my first Ruby-throated Hummingbird on my trip to Quebec! The birds on the east coast are very, very different from the west coast. Very different (and striking) colours, songs and how much more bold they are around people!

Manual focus w/the K1 and Sigma 500mm


Awesome

Orange Bellied Parrot, which some experts talk of as being functionally extinct, since there are perhaps only four breeding-age females left in the wild. K-1, FA*300 f4.5:

A very common Double-Barred Finch, but a first for me. Heavily cropped.
