This set was done for a slide show and posted here three years ago. I posted a link to it in answer to a query of how that camera performed with the Pentax K20D and the Pentax DA 55-300mm lens, and a comment was posted to that thread, which is how it came to reappear here. The first 8 were part of a series of three threads done four years ago to illustrate the tracking ability of the Pentax K20D which I was testing as it was brand new at the time. I have no recollection of how many shots were taken, but it could not have been too many more than those posted in those threads, as I took only single shots without preset bursts. Needless to say I was impressed with the camera (and the lens) and still use them today, even tho I have the K7 and K5 - I tend to favor it over the K7, but not the later K5, which is still new, but very impressive. The splash shot was one of a larger number, because of the poor timing of my shooting of the fast diving birds (perhaps coupled with a bit of shutter lag and/or slow reflexes). I had posted the link to this summary thread rather than the whole series, but since I can't answer your question directly, it may be necessary to do so now. so if you are interested in seeing more of those images, I am posting the three links below, plus a less successful fourth one of tandem diving that may be of behavioral interest to those who like pelicans.
