Pentax K3 with DA*300mm+DA1.4xTC
Surely this can't be one mothers offspring!?
I imagine this will be a creche of sorts, like with Eider ducks, where one female guards over the chicks of multiple females?

On the way out to get more bugs. The chicks are keeping the two adults busy dawn to dusk

This is an excellent image (of a very nice bird), was the background so far away that it disappeared into this grey area or did you treat this in post?

Anyone here might find this if interest.

Camera Rescue out of Finland has created an outlet. There isn’t very many things that excite me in the Pentax products available but this one stood out.

A very high quality lens but it is very heavy. I use it with the 1.7x autofocus TC and they worked like a charm. This copy looks very clean.

No post processing on the background. This little chap was most confiding and happy to pop up onto perches that gave a nice clear background.

Well last night I was hoping to go and shoot some egrets as the night before I saw about 20 coming over the new Cedar Ave. bridge so incorrectly thought they would be hanging around there the next night when I had time. Instead there were no egrets to be found so shot this somewhat abstract possibly minimalist shot of some of the cable tensioners on the old Cedar Ave. bridge. I was on the other side of the bridge and only had my old sigma 300/4 so this was the best framing I could manage.
