K3ii DFA 150-450 at 450 mm
Snow bunting hanging out at 0 degrees Fahrenheit with 20-25 mph winds like it's no big deal.

They seem to thrive at that kind of weather.

Very nice image of that bird, and you did well to get such a uncluttered, non-distracting background. Bokeh unnecessary.

Golden-headed Cisticola. I suspect this bloke is going through a change in plumage.
K-3 II, DFA 150-450 + 1.4x TC, handheld. See exif for shot details.

Cheers,
Terry

Horned lark, same frigid conditions as the above snow bunting.
This was really a winter trip hoping to finally find and photograph a great gray owl. Maybe next year...

Don't worry, the other two chicks were nearby.

Also nearby were two shy Eastern Yellow Robins:

Which has a different call to what I'm used too, it was probably calling for five minutes before I noticed it. Maybe a juvenile?

The mount on my Tamron 300 f/2.8 still isn't working right, but the lens is still very usable. It works sort of like a screwmount lens now. Wherever you set the aperture with the ring, that's what you see through the viewfinder. These are with the 1.4X teleconverter, aperture set to f/8.

Annoyed, something starlings are good at being. AF locked onto the mesh rather than the feathers, but not too awful.
