It doesn't get much better than that
Thanks. I only wish I could've gotten a little closer so I wouldn't have had to crop as much.

Here's a photo of a supine deer, also taken with the KP + DA* 300 + DA 1.4x converter:

These two videos are shot using Z7 & 500mm PF lens, from a boat. So there is lot of vibration. There was Peacock dancing on river bank, and there was an Elephant taking mud bath. There is no pro-editing here. I do not have time to learn that. I just clipped unnecessary parts using AviDemux.

Place is Bhadra Wildlife reserve, India.

Peacock dance (I think camera was in FX mode)



Elephant (DX mode)

Two small birds at 300mm and cropped by 50%. Open bush in North Queensland - anyone care to confirm identity?
I think the yellow one is a juvenile Mangrove Gerygone,Gerygone levigaster . I saw mum nearby in adult beige plumage and 50% bigger in size. It could be a Weebill but it is too immature looking and possibly Yellow Thornbill but again too immature and the eye is solid black.





I have checked my copy of Simpson and Day several times but cannot identify the next one:




Both taken with K3 and DA55-300 ED

Thank you Des, habitat description is correct, what threw me is the angular feather shape on the top of the head - wasn't apparent to me in the wild but the illustration may be more exaggerated. Otherwise the best match in the reference material.

Thanks luftfluss. The handheld shots take some practice going from K-3 to KP to a first time on an old MX tomorrow’.

Following @lukulele 's lead, some butterfly pics with the A400...












BTW, the photo of the common buckeye was the first - and so far only - time I've ever seen one.
