Some Birds -- K-5, FA* 300 and (+ F1.7x AFA)

Hi All,

Got a few chances to so some shooting in the past few weeks --

Great Blue Heron handheld with just the K-5, FA* 300 f4.5

Black Crowned Night Heron, also handheld with the K-5, FA* 300/4.5 + 1.7x AFA

Ruby Throated Hummingbirds, K-5, FA* 300/4.5 + 1.7x AFA shot from a CF travel tripod, compact ballhead + Wiberley Sidekick. ISO 1600 BTW

Cedar Waxwing, same setup as the HBs, vertical crop from a landscape frame, shot from about 20' farther away.

All were shot in jpeg, cropped to 8x10, PP'd to taste.
