breakfast deterrent

After several weeks of non-stop feeder action, just yesterday I said to Bonnie that we were bound to see some bird-death out there eventually. "Huh?" A Cooper's or Sharp-Shinned Hawk is going to arrive with all this activity and all this high-vantage cover surrounding the deck. And as if on cue, this Cooper's arrived this morning. And sat here checking everything out for 5 mintues. I'm quite sure he's added this spot to his to-do list.

 

Pentax K-3 | 67 SMC 165/2.8 with Fotodiox adapter

 

I was a little irritated after snapping these when I realized I'd switched manual aperture off accidentally on the 67 lens so these were all shot wide open. They look good but sure could have been a lot sharper tightened up just a stop or two.
