  • Very nice shot Valeriu. :) Great lighting on the field and love the moody clouds.  I love a good storm and the dark clouds so hoping we get some soon. Ian.
  • The 150-450mm is my most used lens and is almost always attached to the K3II, or rather, the K3II is attached to it. I usually carry it on a Black Rapid sling strap and use it handheld as I am ...
  • Very nice! I am still waiting to see this lens in stock anywhere in the UK as I definitely want to add it to my landscape lens collection for the K1.  I have seen some superb photos taken with it ...
  • Replied in Cuckoo!
    Thank you! I keep thinking of adding the 100mm Macro too.  I already have the old Sigma 105mm Macro which I have had for about 10 years now.  A great lens but the Pentax 100mm seems to be better. ...
  • Replied in Cuckoo!
    Fascinating bird, but yet to see a female. I always thought they looked very much like birds of prey too. Ian.
  • Replied in Cuckoo!
    Thank you Ben. Ian.
  • Superb!  Love that 2nd shot with the young peeping out. :) I will try looking for Owls when I am away next week. Ian.
  • Replied in Cuckoo!
    Thank you Valeriu. Great video too.  Nature always amazes! :) Ian.
  • Replied in Cuckoo!
    Nice! Enjoy using it.  I've certainly given it a lot of use since I got it. :) Ian.
  • Replied in Cuckoo!
    Although the 150-450mm is quite a chunky and heavy lens, I don't find the weight a problem as I carry it on a sling - Black Rapid or Sun Sniper.  When sitting in place for long periods it's on the ...

    Thanks Walt. Surprised I got it in shot at all as I didn't see it fly up.  Lucky shot but love it, more for the reaction of the Cuckoo. :) Ian.
  • Replied in Cuckoo!
    Hi You are correct, my mistake! :) I did indeed use the 150-450mm for the first shot, then switched to using the 300mm and 1.7x AFA afterwards for handheld shooting. I think the DFA 150-450mm is a ...
  • Created discussion thread Cuckoo!
    I always love to hear the Cuckoos calling on a sunny early morning walk, but they are elusive and notoriously hard to get close to.  A tip off by another local photographer had me heading about ...
  • Created discussion thread Draggin' Clouds!
    I was sitting at my usual spot this morning watching all the Martins and Swallows buzzing about when I saw an approaching Airbus A380 just as it flew into some thick cloud.  As it emerged on the ...

    Thank you Arijit.

    Thanks Mike. Ian.

    Hi Valeriu I'd love to see them in the wild, but for now I am just trying to get shots of wild foxes and badgers.  Maybe one day if they return to the UK, I'll be able to see them. :) Ian.
  • Replied in European Lynx
    Thank you. I was just happy to finally see them in the open.  The shot of the one standing on the big branch could almost look like a wild shot if I clone out a couple of small items. ;) Ian.
  • Replied in European Lynx
    Thank you. They sure are magnificent looking. Ian.

    Hi The Bobcat's latin name is "Lynx Rufus", so they are all related. :) I'd love to see these wildcats in the wild at some point. Ian.
