back door, front door - lorikeets & Rouletts
Lens: Sigma 70-300 DL f4-5.6 Camera: K20D Photo Location: Mekbourne 
Posted By: Cee Cee, 03-18-2013, 03:31 PM

I was working in the back yard on Sunday when I heard some squarking behing me, they were kind enough to wait while I went inside and got my camera, changed lenses & put a card in.





As I walked inside I heard the distintive sound of the Roulettes ( RAAF flying display team ) overhead, coming in to land at Essendon after doing their display at the F1 grand prix here in Melbourne, so I stepped out my front door, camera in hand with the right lens on.







thanks for looking

Nice shots of the lorikeets, CC. Getting the eye in focus and sharp can be a challenge. Any chance of getting the eyes of the Roulettes pilots in focus?

thanks Richard, I agree that lorikeets can be a challange, even when they are in focus it looks a little off to me, must be something to do with the colours, If the pilots would lift their helmet visors I'll give it a try.
