Purple Finch

PURPLE FINCH, GREEN, MICHIGAN, MAY 7, 2015

Pentax K-3
Pentax-F* 300mm f4.5 plus Pentax HD 1.4x teleconverter (420mm)
1/400 sec. f8
ISO 800

I had to kick up the ISO in order to get sufficient shutter speed to capture this outlier in the horde of pine siskins that settled upon our feeders yesterday. A little work with Lightroom smoothed out the resultant noise.
