Wow....the detail is marvelous....the result of skill, camera equipment (K10D), lens (Pentax 600mm) and...did I mention consummate skill .

Tremendous pictures Marc. I know even if I used that fine equipment, my pictures would fall short.
Merry Xmas....

Agree with lesmore49. I couldn't do anything like this.

Merry Christmas to you and your family, too.

Hi Les,

Thank you for the very kind words and sometimes there is a lot of time spent waiting for the moment. Thus the side effect of waiting is enjoying the subject activity - that's worth the wait.

I've added the specifics to the camera gear used - specifically the lens! My bad on that omission.

I will pixel peep simply to confirm IQ of the shot - then I know if it's a keeper or not. These images all hold up very well at 100%. What amazes me is not the image itself, but the details captured that we would never see with the naked eye. That's the beauty of this kind of photography!

Merry Christmas to you!

Cheers,
Marc

Another super set, really like how you can get the exposure so perfect with the pure red feathers.

Cheers

Wow. Superb images and I also like your comment about photographs showing us things the naked eye wouldn't see. I also like that aspect of photography.

All the best,
Th.

Hi Marc,

Great series!

I especially like the lighting on the Red Bellied Woodpecker! It's hard to get a shot where you can actually see why they're named Red Bellied. . .

Getting the fine detail is what it's become all about for me. . . a sometimes expensive obsession. . .but definitely worth it for me.

Great stuff!

Scott
