The Oriental Honey Buzzard, flying quite low after chasing by the large crow. Taken about two weeks ago.

Great Hornbill shot with K5 + Sigma 500/4.5


Long Tailed Shrike shot together with Pentaxian (thanks to him for the bird's location which was very near his house), we were both newbie at that time.
K5 + DA*300

Superb captures, Ken!

I am cheating a bit to post here, but let's say with the crop sensor I meet the requirements to post...

Troglodyte de Caroline / Carolina Wren [Troglodytes ludovicianus]
Saint-Jean-sur-Richelieu, 2021.02.08

=====
This troglo was around since the beginning of the winter. He feeds on suet I make and at night he hides under the patio.
At first he wasn't alone, he had a friend, but the latter haven't been seen for a while.
When the sun is from south-west, he come to the to of our dark BBQ and enjoy the heat.
That's when I was able to capture this photo, through our old double kitchen window.
He's so pretty!

Ahah! someone else who has to dig a trench through the snow to get to the barbecue from time to time. Nice Carolina Wren - great that they can get through your winter.

Apparently, there are a few of them hanging around in Ottawa.

I was walking on a trail on a very snowy day. Suddenly I saw a dark shadow flew pass ahead of me about 150 ft away. When I investigated, it turned out to be this fellow. The snow was so heavy that I was having problem getting good focus. K-1 and FA* 400/5.6

Northern winters are still difficult for the non-migratory Carolina wren, but the fact that they are surviving through the winter more regularly and farther north than they did 20 years ago should not make any of us happy.

Thought I'd post an interesting high f-stop (f/22 and f/29), slow shutter speed (1/180) experiment for BIF with the DA 560.
I underexposed the background, relying on the Godox X Pro and two remote Godox V860ii flashes to "stop" the action. Manual setting at 1/8 power positioned near the feeder created an interesting blur.

K3ii, DA 560 1/180 at f/22 Pine Siskin


K3ii, DA 560 1/180 at f/29 Mountain chickadee


And just to remind everyone that the DA 560 can actually take clean photos, here's my resident white-headed woodpecker in the snow.

Deer return to the meadow following our late snowstorm

Deer in meadow, 50% crop.

NOTE: Using Pentax-FA 645 150-300mm f 5.6. EXIF shows 260mm setting, but I thought it was set at 300mm, sorry!

These are interesting photos and some great experimentation. I particularly like the top one.

Didn't tightly crop this pic and leave the red leaf at the top left corner so that can compare the size of the bird.
Shot with 500mm + cropped APSC K3, if full frame + 300mm the bird will appear smaller in frame....

Passport refused. They don't accept profile shots. ;-) Thanks Luis.

Thanks Peter. Old story: proximity and a good lens.

That's some shot for a newby!
Thanks siva.ss.kumar and Des.

You've got me looking at them on eBay now. Would be fun for extreme tele moon photos, I bet.
How do you like it? Have you tried it on a K-1 or crop body?

Hello Matt,

Up to now, I only mounted the 645Z to it and results were "surprising", to say the least. I posted an evaluation in the P67 "Lens Reviews" section of the forum. A K1 body, or even a K3, could easily be used with it with the proper Pentax adapter. I will certainly try this later when Spring comes around. Images were flat at f/5.6 but picked up contrast and resolution starting at f/8 and held steady up to f/22. Only problem was handling it as it is insanely heavy and cumbersome but a solid ballhead with a sliding quick-release plate solved the problem. It sold for peanuts (around 300 US $) only, so it represents a "no-risk" investment.


Regards
