Went for a wander through Scotts Creek today ( a small bush reserve) ...... a few bird shots.....the last one hasn't been described in any scientific texts.....it locally referred to as the "Thick Tailed Wood Knot".... mostly tree dwelling, but spends it's later years on the ground....all DFA 150-450... all just walk'n shoot hand held stuff.

Excellent little birdie FS! I know you are a fantastic chef and make delightful dishes, but I beg you...please spare that little birdie!

This Jay is suffering in our stifling heat and humidity...it was another mouth-open-to- breathe kind of day here.

Bigma 50-500...Crop Mode.......Just love that Crop Mode!





Tough on the wildlife with this heat...all except the squirrels. As long as they have plenty to eat and some cold beer they can survive anything! We once had a tornado pass through here and they just kept on eating like nothing was going on to concern them.



Regards!

Nice picture but very unfortunate your K1 broke. It's built like a tank. What kind of damage happened?

Cut it out Micromacro, don't you know that you cannot use a K-1 to take a picture of a man coming toward you on a bike?

He was far, and slow.

Very nice pic!


Eeeek! Sorry dude, that is a stinker! I hope you have the ADP policy on the K-1... and yes, as others said, time for a better tripod and/ or use a sand bag or some kind of weight on a center hook when you can (your camera bag or backpack will do).

Here are a couple of Pixel Shifted images from last night:

Golden Hour After the Storm (with DA *55 in full frame mode)



Sunset. (with DFA 24-70)



Both of these were shot pretty dark to keep highlights in the sky and then the foreground brightened about three stops.

Here's the damage thread: https://www.pentaxforums.com/forums/190-pentax-k-1/325423-ugh-i-broke.html

My tripod is solid and not to blame. It's was my error for not tightening the ball head which made the camera flop down which unbalanced it.

No, I didn't...I was too busy worrying about the fate of that poor little birdie, knowing how they tend to end up as a gourmet meal or fine cream gravy at your hands.

However, now that I see it I am very impressed...and very jealous. When did you get that?

I look forward to seeing what you do with it, I know in your hands there will be superb results. I might also mention that most of the squirrels here saw that acquisition too and are packing their bags and heading your way......they say they want the kind of shots you can now give them with regularity. Can you provide your street address....I am more than happy to pay their airfare, and hope you can deal with the little rodents better than I have. After they chew up everything in sight at your place, maybe you will want to just give me that lens to get rid of them?

Best Regards!
