Ok, some nice shots here, you get my like. Surprising that bird has rings.
Thanks for the comment.

TheJays along the Highway 60 corridor are studied by staff and students from the University of Guelph. Because this is the furthest south they are found in Canada and they depend on freezing cold in winter to preserve the food they collect, they are a perfect "study the effects of global warming" species. I have to drive 40 miles to find birds that aren't banded. They are really friendly birds, easy to catch, track and study. They are so friendly I sometimes think they recongize me, but then you see them with other people, and you realize they are the same with everyone. They just like free food, and people. But they are territorial and usually you only see two at a time, or in the summer, possibly two parents and a couple of chicks. But they never overwhelm you like seagulls or Blue Jays can.

Is Ansel Adams back with a Pentax camera?
I think he may choose C- or N- if he comes back before K-1 released.........

And, he may insist on putting his pictures in a way like this................

Wow... hit it out of the park on your first post. This obviously isn't your first rodeo. Very nice set, I think you and your K-1 are a good match. Looking forward to seeing more from the pair of you.

Oh, an welcome aboard.
Thank you for the kind words, yes been in the Pentax camp for awhile but the K1 has been a great step up.

Here are a few more that I hope you enjoy.

I'm still trying to master the HSS with my K-1 and flashgun, yesterday a small bush walk down to the gorge on a bright sunny day provided me with an opportunity to test it out, shady hats hide faces after all;

I believe my settings were -1ev in camera and -1ev in flash. 540II was the flash and Fong diffuser attached but dome removed, flash aimed straight at them but from the side with the aid of a vello cord.

You should do a tutorial on how you create this kind of magic.

I recently picked up a refurbished Sigma 28mm 1.8 and finally had some time to go out and test it.
