    I haven't seen any of the around in the drier areas of my state for a few years now so it was a delight to find a couple.Quite spectacular birds about 3.5 inches long. I used the 1.4 on the lens which Arash advises against for flight so we shall see but as only one of 4 frames stayed in focus he may be right.

    A very nice flight shot, with the bird taking off. Love the colours and the head angle. Good techs too.

    Excellent, maybe a bit more face sharpening?

    Nice one Ian....I really like the flight pose and the HA....Lovely colours throughout ......the face and the blues on the back do look a little 'soft'.

    Yes well in breeding season these males exude a deal of wax onto their feathers especially round the head area so I am going to have to learn how to deal with that. In sunlight. even fading light it seems to be a problem .You can see the grease even on the bright blues. Also will leave off the 1.4 for flight photos.Thanks for your input.
