A male American Robin. Tamron 55BB 500/8 mirror lens. Pentax KP ISO 1600 1/640th. The 55BB continues to surprise me. Anybody who says mirror lenses arenít sharp hasnít tried the right one.

My favourite Long-tailed Duck spot where they come up close was empty on my last visit (maybe they finished up all the mussels), so I'll have to content myself with more distant shots before they head back to the Arctic.

The long tailed duck is one of the prettiest, and you caught a whole raft of them. Thanks for posting.

Only 210mm taken with the DA 55-300 PLM on the K-1, so I could have gone to 300mm if needed.
My favourite of the set, but only 1 fave on flickr


Not my favourite at all ( well down the list) but 2 flickr favs.... flickr and I are not always in agreement.

You could almost say... the eagle has landed.

Nice shots!
