Blue-faced Honeyeater - Another Pic
Lens: Pentax HD DA 55-300mm f/4.5-6.3 ED PLM WR RE Lens Camera: Pentax KP Photo Location: My Neighbour's Front Yard ISO: 800 Shutter Speed: 1/250s Aperture: F8 
Posted By: K2 to K50, 09-08-2020, 06:45 PM

I was actually standing in my front yard, KP on tripod, trying to catch an entirely different bird hiding in a bush on my left, when this Blue-Faced Honeyeater landed in a bush on my right. I don't normally see them so low to the ground, so took advantage of the opportunity. For some reason, even with the tripod, I have recently not been hitting perfect focus very often ( or maybe my shutter speed has been too low, and the bird(s) have moved their heads) but this shot is close to proper focus - I think?

You "NASA employees" have such interesting looking native animals.

Thanks for the viewing, reh321 - I must be dense, but I don't get the "NASA employees" bit, unless you mean our various satellite dishes - perhaps esp Pine Gap?

@Kdgparnell - thanks for the like, Kd.

It is more of a northern bird in WA, apparently - Kimberley region: see Blue-faced Honeyeater - The Australian Museum.

I find the blue around the eye very striking.
