Great pic. The banksia sets it off nicely. We have the wind up here too the last few days - quite nasty!

Good Grief!! What an awesome photograph. It seems so well balanced with great sharpness, exposure where even the mid tones come through so well along with beautiful bokeh and amazing

colors. Thanks for sharing.

Thank you all for the feedback! I honestly didn't expect to get any decent photos because of the wind and the fact that it's winter. A surprising number of birds seem to have stayed and put up with the nights below freezing point!

Great photo! I love the angle of the lighting on the bird.

Thank you! I try to wait until the bird's eye is in the sun.

Nice, very nice!
Thanks! I was also happy with this one because it shows the Banksia flower that the Honeyeater was feeding on.

Thanks! Absolutely! The only lenses that I have which compare in image quality are the DA*300 and the DFA 100 macro, but obviously they don't have the reach or versatility of the DFA 150-450. I considered buying a Canon camera to get access to some of the third party lenses which aren't available in Pentax mount, but I'm glad I bought the DFA 150-450 instead. If I need a bit more reach, I can put the TC on it, but that sort of focal length is almost unmanageable hand held, and I hardly ever use a tripod.
