    Here I kind of ignored the fact it was a frog/toad thing and just played with colours to choose some I liked and to make the pattern on the back stand out :)

    Second pic a bit more normal! Both taken earlier this summer in Canada

    That last one has potential for me :) Looks quite regal in that chair but I would have liked to get more of the chair in. Just that chair framed to the left of the shot with a bit of space above and to the right :D

    Cheers :)

    Unfortunately that's as it came out (not cropped at all) I just managed to grab the camera and take a few captures before he turned round and burried his head !

    Well heres a few wildlife shots I have taken over the couple of weeks, really learning the sweet spots and limitations of my sigma 75-300mm lens (and boy are there a few limitations)

    Bird stayed long enough on one branch to allow me to try multiple exposures and apertures, and this is as sharp as i could get...

    Took Advantage of the strong winds, which pretty much stopped the birds in their tracks.

    Hmm, pentaxs auto focus has alot to be desired with this lens, waited ages for the shaft of light and the pigeon to take off, and the auto face didn't lock on until it was nearly out of focus,

    Not much (if at all tbh, I don't remember)
    , but that's why I took the 150-600 rather than the 70-200 :p

    hehe :) Yeah it definitely helps when you don't have to crop much. It's a nice shot with all the colours and the detail in the bird is still pretty good.

    I guess that lens is sharpest at F8 is it?

    It appears so, I haven't used it a great deal yet. I got it mainly for airshows and motorsports really, I don't shoot wildlife. It was a miserable grey overcast day so I knew I'd be at high ISO anyway so just left it at f8 to see how it fared. All shots are handheld, I just grab them as I walk around with my daughter.

    This is more like the actual colours on the day:

    Nice light on the pointy-headed deer thing :D I'm sure it has a proper name but I prefer that.

    I'll definitely have to get some Wolf shots at some point too.
