    Those Corellas are exerting their presence over the poor little Rainbow Lorikeets.
    Looks nice and lush in your garden.

    Just checked Marsden way hey ?
    I'll be at my brothers at Loganlea from next Tues night for a couple of weeks, should catch up !!
    We shop Coles Marsden quite a bit.

    It's very hard to capture birds with their movement, especially with any camera less than DSLR.
    What camera did you use for those shots ?

    Here's a few of the best I have EVER got, with my Fujifilm 30x bridge camera, Galahs at Purnie Bore waterhole July last year, and a few around Mt Dare same trip . . .

    Love the 30x manual zoom (good for wildlife) and manual settings on the Fuji HS10, handy on some trips over the phone or P&S Olympus TG1.

    Hi Les

    Just got back from Coles. I used Nikon D7000 with a Sigma 400mm lens. The lens is okay for stationary objects and on a tripod, but too slow for action and it loses a lot of light. I had it hand held at 1/125sec and 5.6f to try and let in more light.. I would have been better using a smaller, faster lens and then cropping the result. The camera is great. I have a D7200 as well. But it is the lenses that let me down. I'm saving up for a good Nikon lens. Very expensive though.

    Great Photo's , We love birds but its so hard to get a good shot when you are driving along and stop , they are gone. We saw over 25 Lyrebirds the other weekend on the track in front of us in a 30klm stretch. . They run off and are gone in a flash before you can do anything.
    Guess I will just have to stick to bats :) IMGP4589.jpg IMGP4696.jpg

    Sometimes your in the right light with the lorikeets (usually sun) and the colors are truelly stunning, they look good anytime, but if you know what i mean there special...

    We saw the biggest Peregrine Falcon I've ever seen , up at Wombat a couple of weeks ago , Its was big and fat , sat and stared then took off before I could get my camera out , so this will have to do in the interim :( Not having much luck

    This photo of a "Game Bird" commonly known as a Magpie was taken in my back yard, whilst it looked like it was on it's last day on earth.
