I was amused by how this swan seemed to greet the turtles when she climbed onto this tiny islet.

Shot from my car, Tamron Adaptall-2 400/4 65B + Pentax A 2x-L Rear Converter...
That is a really Great Shot! Perfect for a whole mess of Captions.

Another 100% crop from my F*300 at F/8
That is lovely.
Great detail. - Star lens' value for money, eh?

That lens certainly copes will with cropping. That's some impressive detail.

Indeed, a very nice image and definitely one for a caption contest.

A second, and he was gone.

Interesting encounter (and good shot too, but that goes without saying...), I'm curious if you saw if she offered any more interaction to the turtles, or just settled down ignoring them after that?
No other interaction... she briefly flapped her wings and then settled down. Her mate was foraging nearby. Unfortunately I didn't have time to hang around and see what happened next.

The Robins should be arriving very soon, so looking forward to some good shots with the new K-3 III.
Here's one from 2017, a female Red-capped Robin.
K-3 II, DFA 150-450 + 1.4x TC, handheld. See exif for shot details.

Cheers,
Terry

Proud mother.
First two pictures from :K1 II and 60-300 Tamron Adaptall MF, at 300mm - I forgot to enter the lens FL data.
First is a significant crop from second photo.

Third is from my KP with Sigma 50-500 at 500mm. Same robin.

Getting close to wildlife unnoticed is pretty key for some good photos, I thought I was doing pretty darn well sneaking up to this deer in an open field... until I sneezed that is!



K-50 and A400/5.6 - just cropped some off the two sides to make it portrait orientation from landscape.

Ho Ho. That is a great shot, Noel! Both birds nicely in focus - but what a great pose you have caught them in together! Love it!

Well this shot is nothing to be sneezed at, Bert - you appear to have caught it in the moment of its awareness of you. The tail is beautifully displayed. The crop to portrait has produced an image worth keeping - will definitely make for good shooting memories down the track.

Looks like New Holland Honeyeaters - they are very striking looking birds, for sure!
