Thanks very much indeed Taks. As you can see, with the KP I'm shedding my aversion to high ISO. It gives a couple more stops compared to the K-3. Take the second shot: 210mm, f5.6, 1/100th sec, 6400 ISO. Shutter speed and aperture were already at the limit, so the only option (other than flash, which I didn't have out) was high ISO. Could not have done that with the K-3 where it's usually muddy beyond 1600 ISO. Even the RAW file didn't have much noise, but DxO PhotoLab does a good job in cleaning up what there was.
The difference from my shots seems more than just couple of stops So much detail on your 6400 ISO. I start loosing detail at 640

A round of robins?

A collection of shots of our friendly resident Eastern Yellow Robins (which, incidentally, are not closely related to European or North American robins but were simply named for their superficial resemblance). You can see in various shots the different stages of the youngsters morphing from their brown juvenile plumage to the adult grey and yellow.























First three are with the FA*300mm f4.5 and the other eight with the DA 55-300 PLM. First, third and last shots with the K-3; remainder with the KP.

End of the month bird count.....

Today's images DA 55-300 PLM hand held.

2 American Tree Sparrows


Approx. 20 Blue Jays


2 Downy woodpeckers


Two hairy Woodpeckers


Between 6 and 20 chickadees


Two Redbreasted Nuthatches


Maybe 3 or four squirrels.


I have no current images for the Roughed Grouse who comes by once every few days.

It's probably still this lady and she was out there this morning fluffing up the snow.
