A Two Fur. Or Two-fer. Or Two for Two.

I just loving living in Calgary; the mountains are about an hour away, and if you get on the road early enough you’re almost always going to see some kind of critter. Deer are almost as common as cattle around here, and coyotes and rabbits are seen almost as often as cats and dogs, even in the city.

Last weekend was all teeth and claws:

Da Bears

Pentax K20D, ISO 800, f/8, 1/180 sec, 600mm (Tamron 70-300mm LD Di + 2x Tokina TC)

And this weekend was all hooves and horns:
Da Mooses

Pentax K20D, ISO 200, f/4, 1/90 sec, 135mm (smc PENTAX-DA* 50-135mm F2.8 ED [IF] SDM)

I’m really not sure what next weekend will hold… but I bet it’ll be furry!

… and I’ve said it before, but I’m going to say it again… the in-body Shake Reduction feature of the newer Pentax dSLR’s is just AMAZING. These shots were both hand-held!
