Like a camel- this bird looks like it was designed by a committee to use up a spare parts bin. ;-) Great image!

Thanks Arjay Bee. Great comment . They are quite voracious hunters by the way and get totally carried away when seeing a snake

Hello,

Here is an attempt with my "new" SMC-Pentax A* 300 mm f/2.8 ED[IF], recently acquired.
It was quite tricky to get a decent focused image.

I use mine with the 1.7X autofocus TC. They work well together.

Yes, I got such advise to try finding this TC. However, I fear that the K7 will be the limiting component for a very rapid moving target like this one. Also, the weight of this lens is really a pain, I used a monopod and was sitting in a chair watching at the tree hole. Adding an additional 300 g is not something that I would do with such setup.
I plan in a near future to get a KP camera, perhaps the 1.7 x autofocus TC would be justified (if it is compatible).

Thanks
