An example of what can be acheived by someone who is at the top of the game and the fact that these images are captured on Pentax gear is a bonus.

This sets the standards which I hope to aspire too as a wildlife photographer

Yes fantastic shots all of them. I especially like the Fox too - I think he looks a wise old soul!

Great set of shots. I like the way the reflected light is catching the Rail.

regards,

Many thanks guys, some very kind words. The water ail was a showy individual and the blue tit a maual focus on one spot and spray and prey job.

Extremely kind of you to say. I was recently asked when I was going to upgrade from Pentax to one of the big 2 (although to be fair that was because I was moaning about the shutter problem I was having with my K-3) but I think for the money you can't beat a k-3 and DA*300mm. The AF and hi res sensors 'cropability' were a big jump from k-5 (which Im using at the mo as my K-3 is being repaired, I really notice the difference!)

I believe it was a vixen. She was quite a poser until she went off to breed in spring
