Nice shooting Steven. The EXIF hints at an A400/5.6 with 1.7x AFA ...
Since upgrading my IMac software to Catalina, Pentax Forums has been very slow to load any attachments so I used my IPad, which does not let me [as of yet ] include the star symbol instead of an asterisk when I describe the lens.....SMC A * 400 f 2.8.. I did figure out my IMac was constantly downloading and uploading [ from Apple I presume ] so I turned off auto updates and now PF is back to normal.....

From Saturday night. One 20s shot of Andromeda (M31)

K-3
SMC A * 400mm f/2.8 ED [IF]
ISO 1600
1x20s (astrotracer)
@ F-2.8
Add in a lot of processing in RawThearpee and GIMP and you can pull this off.

A different park, Karkarook. Not as many birds but not as timid either:

An actual processed stack of something I shot last Saturday.
M45 or better known as the Pleiades, the 7 sisters, or for those in Japan Subaru

This is the actual FoV you get with my setup:
Camera: K-3 + O-GPS1 (astrotracer)
Lens: SMC A* 400mm f/2.8 ED [IF]
ISO 800
f/3.5
237x10s

I love that lens.

If you aren't familar with the night sky I suggest getting a planetarium app for your smartphone. Personally I like SkySafari but for things like Andromeda others will work too. Using one will make your life a lot easier

These ended up being the last pics I obtained of the seal pup, first of the season, at Angel Bay. The pup has weaned at this point, approx 3 weeks after birth. A few days later it was gone, off on its independent life. A pic posted on a notice board from the last day it was seen show it shedding its white coat. Adaptall 63B 400mm f4 + newly acquired 1.7x pentax tc.



Couple more pics with the adaptall-tc combo...


(this was in the interregnum before more covid restrictions came down on us here in N Wales...)


TBC....

A second pup has been born in Angel Bay - a couple of days old in this pic. Adaptall 360B 300mm + 1.7x tc.



The pup is gone. Long live the pup.

A few more pics.


hello cutie




BAME? I'm just a SEAL, mate!


This guy looks like he's been doing a few rounds in earnest..


And this balloon came barrelling in on the stiff northerly breeze, and disappeared in the clouds off towards Snowdonia.

I went back to Angel Bay yesterday to see what might be going on with seal pups 'n all. No pup in sight, just several seals hanging out on the shingle amongst the boulders. And then, this raptor gave a show, hovering in the uplift off the northerly breeze while scanning the scrubby bluffs that rise from the shore. But what is it?

In this neck of the woods it would be known as a Kestrel...it's very similar to our Nankeen (or Rufous) Kestrel.
Not sure what the local naming would be in your neck of the woods, but possibly similar.

Cheers,
Terry

There's a small raptor here, in fact the smallest North American raptor SFAIK, called the American kestrel (formerly called the "sparrow hawk") that is also very similar to the one in the posted images although its colors are more intense/saturated with more obvious black "sideburns.".

Another lifer in 2020! I'm finally capturing this Asian paradise flycatcher (white morph) on my KP's sensor. A record shot on last week.
