I rarely get this lucky with birds and rarely try to take photos of birds, but today was a pretty good day

Yes they are. I've been lucky enough to be in some places where there were numerous hummingbirds so I could stand back a little and get some good light. Still tough but eventually you get some decent shots.

This was with the DA* 300mm at about 20 feet or so. A gimble mount on my tripod is a godsend in situations like this.

today at the Topeka Zoo and Conservation Center

First photo in series SOOC
second crop and pp

K 3 II + SMC Pentax-D FA 100mm F2.8 Macro

hand held, natural light

birds wouldn't come to me at the feeders, saw them at the sun flowers across the way and decided to take some photos and see what I could get


I'm pretty happy at the result.

Heron Ballet,

Yes, stunning Eagle shots, where are you getting them? I see Shawnee, KS; in your sig,
I spent some time in the early '80s in Leavenworth (short time, not hard time)
Used to go up to a NWR (Squaw Creek?) in southern Nebraska, get eagles and geese in the winters, never got eagles like that through.
Good stuff!
