This waS my first time out shooting with the K-3 and K-1 since shoulder surgery.
Wishing you a steady and full recovery Norm! We missed our Algonquin winter trip this year so your excellent shots will have to compensate.

Hi Ken,

That's a nice bird. I'm just wondering a about the photo. It looks as if the bird has been photoshopped onto the image of the rock due to some artifacts that appear around the bird's toes and the breast. Is this my monitor acting up or is this a composite image? No criticism intended, just curiousity.

all the best,
Hans

I purchased a used SMC 1:4 300mm at the beginning of December, and after 6 weeks I feel I'm finally familiar enough with the lens to start getting good results.

Étourneau sansonnet / Common Starling [Sturnus vulgaris]
En plumage d'hiver / Winter plumage

Saint-Jean-sur-Richelieu, 2021.01.22

Ils sont très jolis avec leur plumage d'hiver ! / They are so beautiful with their winter robe!

Pentax K-1 + SMC Pentax-FA* 250-600mm f5.6 ED [IF] @ 600mm
1/640s, ƒ/6.3, ISO 400


Étourneau sansonnet / Common Starling [Sturnus vulgaris]

p.s. la définition de l'image a été affectée par le fait que la photo fu prise au travers 2 épaisseurs de vieilles fenêtres cadrées de bois.
The final IQ was affected by the fact this shot was made inside the house, and thru 2 old wooden windows.

p.p.s. ho yeah, another disclaimer... light was not so good.

Nankeen Night Heron, K3 DA*300, Tamron-F 1.4 TC:

In around 400-500 visits to Braeside Park I had seen one of these perhaps 5 times and caught one on camera (lousy shots) perhaps 3 times, they seem to be very shy. On the second last day of 2020 as I was arriving at the park I met up with one of the other guys as he was leaving, he had a great big smile on his face as he told me he got a shot of a Night Heron in flight. In my wanderings I arrived at the place he got his shot and after ten minutes I realised that what I thought was yet another Darter chick sunning itself was in fact a Night Heron!

Anyway, turns out a pair are nesting nearby and I've gotten shots on six days so far this year! This is one from today:
