The last green leaves of the season seem to be a real treat for this Grouse.

The light source is simply the sun with no flash and my trusty 300mm FA* lens.

OK, that does it!
I'm getting one of those lenses even if I have to sell my bike to get one!
No, wait... I couldn't do that, then I'd have to walk everywhere... oh well.
Nice shot Tom

Beautiful lighting! I would not have guessed it was natural lighting especially with the hint of catch light in the Grouse's eye!

Thanks Tim, I really love using the old film based FA* lenses especially the 300 since it is so sharp and portable. The K10D I have now seems to work well with those lenses and so far I don't feel the need to upgrade to either the K20D or any of the new lenses Pentax has out.
