Pentax Q7 & Sigma 170-500 (2300mm!!)

Hello guys, my 1st post here.
I've been using a Pentax Q7 and Sigma 170-500mm lens to capture birds at a local park across the street from my condo here in south Florida.....with over 2300mm of focal range I find I can capture animals at fairly long distances without spooking them.
Here are some examples of my captures.......if anyone's thinking of the newer Q7 and Q-S1, I'd like to recommend they get one over the older Q and Q10's due to the improved larger sensor.
