The first will be un cropped and the second an extreme crop. I used the 400mm f/6.5 Alpex prime lens and a K10D. These were taken from between 30 and 40 feet away.

Are these 100% crops, or something a little less? I always get amazed at how much you can crop the K10 pictures to bring the subject closer to you.

Really nice, Bigdawg. Very crisp and good composition. I prefer the close crops because you can better see the bird's features.

I've seen exactly one of these little fellows in my yard this summer and I was fortunate enough to get a pretty good shot.

That is why I posted both the original and the cropped version. To allow you to see how much crop was involved.

Thanks for that. I too like the closer crops and am glad this lens does a decent job at it. This lens will not focus on anything closer than 20-25 feet away. Good for birds and sports but not much else. Would like to see your photo.

I hope you don't mind but I'm rather excited by a free deconvolution (amongst other things) program called Image Analyzer, so I've tried to improve your nice bird shot crop, removing the fuzz.

I like this and no I don't mind at all. My posted photos can be manipulated by any one here as long as they do it in a nice way. Is this a free program or an expensive one. It really did a great job on that photo. Thanks.....
