Went to Tropical Wings yesterday for another K10D test.

Started in the butterfly house with 28-105mm (gf has the kit lenses)




Changed to Vivitar 105mm Macro lens to try manual focussing. Wow, so easy with the K10D. The viewfinder image is so clear and bright.




Wandering outside, came across this little fella singing away, used the Sigma 70-300.



Quick check on the 2 Meerkats - 70-300mm



Before going to the Otter feed. 70-300mm







Chipmunks only seem to sit still when eating. 28-105mm



Lastly checked out the caged birds. 70-300mm











I did find that the autofocus would not focus through the cage, even when on centre-point. The squares in the wire is probably an inch or so across, which meant manually focussing on every shot.

Thanks for looking and sorry for the long post.

Thanks for the comments guys.

I find the biggest part of photography for me is the fun part. If I am not enjoying the picture taking, it becomes a chore. A couple of times I have been out and about, taken a couple of shots then put the camera away.

One more of the otters.

It would also seem that the Wallabies had given birth recently, as there were several Joeys about, all diving into any pouch available. Brown ones usually into white pouches and vice versa.

And that's the reason why I'll never be a pro! My pictures are lousy when I'm not having fun with it.

P.S. Forgot to add - LOVE the pictures!
