Superb Fairy-wren.
These little fellas are rarely still, so keeping them in the viewfinder with a long lens is a challenge, and contrary to popular opinion, the Pentax AF is faster than they are :-)
K-3 ii, DFA 150-450, handheld. See exif for shot details.

Cheers,
Terry

That's a steal! That lens has gained a better reputation recently than when it was in production - but it is a beast. Definitely a location on a support lens, not for walkabout hand-held.

I just keep chasing the bird, that area does not have a single tree so this bird only perch on tall grass making me easy to target him
This pic was KIV last time as it's quite heavily cropped, not the best photo to upload, I process other higher resolution pics, only process this image just now.

This is really wonderful. The pose is unusual for a hummer photo, and the way the colors of the branch and background echo the colors of the bird... the word that comes to mind is "harmonious".

The females pose nicely after being dive bombed by the males! Usually they do some feather ruffling and chirping, which I can barely hear.... Here is a rare to me house finch orange/ yellow variant , first one I have seen in my yard.
