"Under Attack" Best of 2014 Submission
Contest Number: 101 Contest Theme: Best of 2014 Lens: Pentax SMC FA 80-320mm Camera: Pentax K3 Shutter Speed: 1/60s Aperture: F6.7 
Posted By: Pentaxaholic, 01-29-2015, 09:55 AM

Handheld using Pentax K3 with Pentax SMC FA 80-320mm lens (focal length 320mm) at F 6.7, ISO 100, and 1/60th second shutter speed to allow the subject to take part in creating nice motion blur effect of the image. Taken November 29 2014

Pictured is a Pine Siskin which are very social birds but aggressive towards outsiders. Watching their action compelled me to capture the motion and aggression!
