Big birds, little birds...
Jan 23, 2011

More and more I find myself going out with just my K5+DA*300 and leaving my Bigma and tripod at home. That's not a problem when shooting big birds like these White Pelicans:

But what about small birds? Well, it turns out that it is possible to get decent shots of them as well, but I can't realistically print them at 16x20 like I can the pelican shots. Of course, I'm not sure it really would be appropriate to print these small birds that large.

Downy Woodpecker:

Golden-crowned Kinglet:
