Stunning images. I didn't know the U-2 was still actively flown.

As long as the subject isn't too far away, one can get a decent 300mm shot with the Pentax-FA 100-300mm at f5.6. Acorn Woodpecker family at the watering hole:

I thought about how nice it was that people wanted to stay connected with us even though they switched brands, and now I look forward to all the photos, regardless of brand.

If I remember correctly somewhere near the start of the thread it was decided all makes of camera were allowed and I'm always interested to see photos no matter where they come from.
My sentiments too. I think the etiquette on the site generally is that images from all brands are welcome unless specified otherwise.

I for one am really pleased that @str8talk83 and @Mike.P are still posting their awesome images here. Long may they continue.

Unfortunatly my backyard is really light polluted (bortle 8 with a 9 about a mile away) so there is orange glow all the way to the zenith.

Some of you may enjoy spying on the Peregrine Falcon nest in downtown Melbourne Home | 367 Collins St Falcons

Two chicks hatched on the weekend and it looks like at least 1 more overnight.

Well Craig, I wasn't too worried about the sextuplets (!!!) but I'm happy that you are still watching them and making lovely images.
