Grass, something to photograph when insects are uncooperative.
Nicely detailed with a great background to show it off.

Excellent work. It's good when things go you way, but it's never only luck when you're in the right place with the right equipment.
Thank you.

Due to the small buffer and the AF not always locking on correctly I've gotten into the habit of taking 2-3 images in Continuous High, checking focus and taking another couple which is what I did here. Unfortunately I realised too late that the important image was number three which I didn't capture as I was confiming focus.
If I'd just let the shutter run and trusted the AF then I would have captured at least six images before I ran across the boof head jumping around in the right of frame of the last 2 images. Ah well, such is life. Speaking of life, one of the event photographers was actually over the back of this berm taking images of bikes on another corner. The bike missed him but it wouldn't have been by much.
Yep, just hold the shutter down once autofocus locks in and let camera AF take care of the rest . K-1 autofocusing is way better then my K-50...huge difference.
I just ordered K-3 with battery grip, that is going to be my camera for BIF, action, sports etc with higher shutter frame rate.

AF is not always a guarantee mate, and whilst I can't comment on the K3 AF, I look forward to seeing some more impressive action shots etc once you've got that beastie out in the field.

A lovely pair of images here, the use of complimentary colours in the first images works well and the contrast in the restaurant creates a vivid image.

K-1 with the DA 10-17 Fisheye on full frame mode. This lens works very well at 13/14mm and above with little or no vignetting.

You are 100% correct. I shoot mostly with manual focus lenses like SMC 500mm f/4.5 and SMC A 400mm f/5.6. There is never guarantee with AF, just improve your chances to get some decent shots like the hard to shoot Barn Owl in flight.
I am heading out the door to get some more shots of that elusive Barn Owl in the morning hunt
