I don't do BIF and I'm humbled by much of what I see here on this thread, but the poor “Duchess” (Pentax-A* 300mm F4.0) don't get out much.

Thought the light was to improve dramatically... but hope was short lived so still at 8000 iso.

What appears at first glance, to be a one bird fast flight sequence... was actually four birds in one shot, flying in different directions.

A potential air traffic control nightmare in the making and I'm also still undecided on the best presentation of this image... landscape or portrait.
Hey, ISO 8000 or 80 - doesn't matter - you got the shot! And it appears to have a 3D effect - neat!!! And I prefer the landscape version - shows more context.

Also, your next one appears to have that same 3D effect - pretty neat!!

Double bee?

BBIF? Actually, the same bee twice... K-1 + DA*300, ISO 1600, 1/1250 @ f/8, continuous shooting H.
JPEGs SOOC, top bee cloned in from the second shot with a bit of re-alignment, and cropped to 3200x4800.

I knew it--they look too much alike to actually be different bees!

Two bee, or not two bee, that is the question.

Nice photos, I love it when I see owls.
Only one I've ever managed to photograph round here, just a little pygmy owl.
