Two Creatures Great and Small

I’ve been experimenting with my newest toy, a Pentax Q-S1 mirrorless camera. Petite (the body is the size of a deck of cards) yet surprisingly powerful, it has the ability to use almost any lens ever made—and with sensor-based shake reduction! The above shot was made handheld with a converted enlarging lens (Apo-Rodagon-N 90mm f4) at a distance of about three feet. The pic below is of the catbird who lives in our backyard. We have some kind of inter-species relationship going on (it's complicated.) Same set-up, about six feet away:

Nice pics! My grandfather had a special relation with the catbirds in Baltimore. I remember that from 50 or 60 years ago.
