Look carefully in the center of the next two pictures and you will see a mink watching me.
I got a better picture of one swimming and then trying to hide on the opposite bank.
While trying to reduce the weight of my camera systems, I had changed over to the micro 4/3 system and replaced my Pentax K-5 with a Panasonic G3
, but after using it for a while I got frustrated with the ergonomics of the G3
and went back to the K-5. If I am going to continue getting wildlife pictures, I need a camera that is faster than the micro 4/3 Panasonic G3 and that has better ergonomics and is sturdier and weather resistant.
I just got a Pentax K-5 delivered yesterday and I need to check it out. I had returned the previous one since the level was way off. My initial look at this one shows the level to be more accurate but I’m still “exercising” the camera to check it out. Since I’m not the type to evaluate a camera by taking pictures of charts, etc., I immediately took it out this morning to get some real-life shots and was lucky to have crossed paths with some mink.
