It's nice to finally see you in here Daniel. Great captures.

I don't think that's a Green Heron - anyone wanna ID the first bird???? I'm a little puzzled.

Thanks for dropping in and the compliment. It seems some of you did also write to Steve Pentax forum as well.

The rookery is located on the north side of Steele East & east of York/Durham Line. 2 weeks ago there were at least 40 of them there. They should be out of the rookery shortly. The location is difficult to access which is why they (GBH) chose. Taking pict as you can see was difficult as they were high up and the view are blocked by branches. I had a good time listening and watching them which is what counts. Getting some ok shots were bonus. At the rookery they are quite inaccessible. But when they are hunting, they are very approachable indeed.

Hi Daniel,

Tell the truth now...these shots are actually multiexposures of the same bird from the K10D, right? (I'm kidding, of course.)

Great shots! Thanks for posting these.

BTW, I'm glad you're posting here now. I always enjoy your posts, pictures and insight.

Great Blue Heron I believe. Some of them have started hunting already. Got these fairly close

Russ,

wow another fellow from dpreview. To tell you the truth I would rather have the pp skill of doing the multiexposure and layers handling. At least I can communicate better with my daughters or the newer generation of photographers.
Why would you bother with an old lens with huge fossilized focus ring that never focus anyway?
Why not get those updated zoom (typically Canon/Nikon) snapping at those flying birds? All you need is to point the lens in the general directions of the birds, zoom in and snap.
BlahBlahBlah
Anyway nice talking to another Pentaxian who cares about taking pictures and who does take great pictures.

Daniel

The last bird in the first set seems to be carrying a donut with his feet...

For how much is an A 300mm going these days?

They were branches that I did not bother to crop out.
A*300mmF4 likely goes for around $500 now that it has gone down from $800 because of the DA*300mmF4.
Both A* & M* 300mmF4 happen to be the smallest 300mmF4 prime lenses (of all makes except maybe Olympus because of the crop factor). It is so small that it is pocketable (5 inches 77mm dia) .













Because its long FL, its DoF is little even at F8 as you can see. This was one of the first BIF test shots

K100D ver 1.0 ~ Cooool!

Nice examples of what a K100D (ver 1.0) can do in the hands of someone with an eye for drama and knows how to use of a great lens to tell the story.

Thx... (too )

Regarding the first shot, I was wondering where all the Concords went after they were retired. Nice captures.

Hehe! Great observation...

These are great shots. This is the first time I've ever seen what a Rookery looks like. What a beautiful bird...
