Eastern Australian Rainbow Lorikeet
Contest Number: 101 Contest Theme: Best of 2014 Lens: Pentax DA 180-135 Camera: Pentax K30 Shutter Speed: 1/200s Aperture: F5.6

This rainbow lorikeet is a fairly common bird along the Australian east coast and tame enough to quietly walk up to within a couple of metres. Here it is eating the nectar from our flowering gum (actually, it is watching me sneak up onto it).
I am finding the Pentax K30 a terrific camera to use. I am discovering new ways to use it every time I spend time with it. Last October I found the SCN , Moving Object setting which made it possible to take some spectacular photos when we went whale watching.
