K3 III -- First day birding
20

Weather has been poor so I have been waiting for a day to do some birding with new DSLR camera and the 150-450 Pentax lens.  That day came last Friday in Gloucester Ma along the shore and iin the marshes.  Only problem was the 30 to 50 MPH winds - I had to stand into the wind to get shots.  First comment -- AF, tracking, and keepers is a joy.  I had a good day.  I did some birds in flight ( sea gulls below) and some bird wading through the salt marshes (see Egrets below). All in all, everything I have been waiting for.  Cant wait to see all of us talking about thsi new camera -- Pentax delivered!
