Birds in the Agapanthus
Lens: Sigma 70-300 DL f4-5.6 Camera: K20D Photo Location: home ISO: 1600 
Posted By: Cee Cee, 01-21-2013, 05:33 PM

Just about every time I step outside the front door for the last couple of weeks I've been seeing these honey eaters leaving the Agapanthus, so I've been sneaking out camera in hand, but they always know, I have to use manual focus as my old auto focus sigma can be heard in the next post code ! and firing the shutter gets there attention, usually gone after the first or second shot.
@1600 iso to keep the shutter speed up, from about 15m with slight crop.
