Super! Aside from the overall image, the highlight in the eye is - - if you'll excuse - - an eye-catcher.

Agreed. 100% for the catch light.

Thanks.
I'm pretty happy with that shot because half decent shots of these blokes are damned hard to get, so to get a nice one is a big plus :-)
In this neck of the woods, they have the reputation of being the most difficult raptor to photograph.

Cheers,
Terry

Now that Flickr is mostly back. Very slow ATM though.





Some high ISO shots because my lap kept stopping the aperture down...






Long range...


Brown bird, brown vegetation...






I would say the 150-450 fringes less than the 55-300


It got a little windy...

I guess I can never have enough photos of Yellow Warblers...





High ISO Canada Warbler in the long shadows of morning...




Common Yellowthroat checked me out for a while


Tough shot to get as it wasn't making any sound. Normally I hear them before I see them.


He just sat on that stump preening while people and dogs went by.

Little Eagle and Australian Magpie.
This shot is in the latter part of an altercation that lasted only a couple of seconds.
I can't be absolutely sure about how it started as I only picked it up in my peripheral vision, but it seemed like the Little Eagle had been perched in a tree about 3m above ground and the Magpie swooped in and attacked, and the two tumbled to the ground.
I immediately swung around and got them in the viewfinder and managed to get 3 shots off before both had exited the scene.
Not an excellent example photographically, but an interesting record of the event...and another good example of how good Pentax's auto focus really is.

K-3 ii, DFA 150-450, handheld. See exif for shot details, where you will see the camera was set at -1.7EV, the result of previously attempting to shoot black birds.

Cheers,
Terry

You set the hook. Now, what type of birds are these?

My wife and I asked ourselves the same question, so we opened his Flickr stream and found another shot in his "Birds in Action" labeled "Coppersmith Barbet"
Yes it's CopperSmith Barbet.

Bigma (the first model)

The meadowlark I took hand held (hence the high ISO, but also cropped), but the bison I was able to prop my arm a bit on passenger seat
