You definitely should. Also, wait for a sale such as black friday when CRK has discounts at the same time as OS.

Rob, do you use a tripod or some other mount?

Here's the same bird in 4K video (Sony AX53).

No, virtually all my photos with the DFA 150-450 are hand-held. There's occasional exceptions like some photos I've taken in permanent hides where I can lean the lens bracket on the window sill.

We're lucky to have so many beautiful feathered friends in Australia.

Another good one Rob. They are an odd-patterned bird, basically a "black and white" bird, but with the streak of yellow on the wing. And that strange little frill under the neck. The tip of the plant it is perched on looks like it might be one of the native Australian grass trees? Xanthorrhoea gracilis?

Thanks! They have funny white spikes on their ears, too. I think this one may be immature judging by the brown in the feathers. The plant is actually a Banksia, although there are Xanthorrhoea elsewhere in the gardens. The leaves of the plant are in the bokeh of the video.
