Very appealing image of the two owlets. There is almost a 3D effect there. I found myself reaching out to try to unscrew the screw holding the sign it looked so real. Weird.
Thanks, and yes you are right... the image has something special.
That FA*250-600 delivers even with the K-1 and the HD TC1.4x
I'll sure regret it if I get part of it..

Turns out a family of western screech owls lives in my friend's pecan tree down the street. Didn't have to wait long for another chance to get more owl shots!

Un des deux avant-derniers à être sortis du nichoir. Ils se trouvent dans les arbres environnants et restent tranquille pendant le jour.
One of the 2 second to last that have quit the cabin. They rest all days in lower trees not far from the house.

Me too! Their eyes are so expressive. Owl pics would make great candidates for caption contests.

The two bird shots are very good, but the two macros are more than just very good. The dragonfly - skimmer - in particular is very sharp.

Thank you K2 to K50 - I have found the focusing can be variable with this camera but I'm pleased with these shots as well. There are other factors involved in focusing - the side light was a bit harsh for the Snipe.
