Eastern Rosella (Platycercus eximius) taken at the East Parklands in Adelaide, South Australia.
These are fairly common, but very colourful

I'm jealous, Australia has such cool birds and wildlife!

Put's our robins and crows to shame

They are a difficult subject.

This was my first serous bird shoot with the K-3.
I must say that the faster AF and screw drive and frame rate were a big improvement over the K-5.
Also the metering seems better.
I'm also very happy with the colour rendering.
