A135mm wide open - nice!
I have always found that my SMC Pentax-A* 135mm F1.8 when stopped down to F2.8 gives truly great results, does that count.

I was just going to say that is an Australian Rainbow Lorikeet.
He certainly did lose his way.

Nice Rainbow Lorikeet. That one must be a long way from home.
From flickr:

"Yes, it was taken iirc at the wild animal park here in southern California. Thats pretty neat! All we have where I live is some crows and doves"


Beautiful animal thats for sure!

Got another closeup too




ISO 800 @ F/2.8

Thanks for the photos - looks like there's more in common between Southern California and lower Eastern Austalia than just the vegetation and the land. Certainly supports the theory that the two landmasses were once joined!

Of course it counts! Any photos to show?

Would love to see some examples at f1.8? The DOF, particularly for close ups, would be scary!

Thanks - great pictures there, and not over-sharpened or over-processed too (I have a real issue with photos that look over processed - they seem very unrealistic and unnatural to me).

Nice shot, we get them in the hundreds here, they fly very low and in large flocks too, my dog used to jump up and snatch them all the time
