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 :-)

When is a tree not a tree?
When it's a Tawny Frogmouth of course!
I got shots of a family of four in this tree, over a period of about a week last Dec. This may be one of that family.
Not the best light, but does capture their interesting behaviour.

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.

Terry

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

This may be of interest.
You can pass your pixelshifted RAW to dcrawps and ask it to mark PS artefacts in the output...you can choose the % threshold.
dcrawps looks at the differences in the same pixels in the two green channels.
The switches of interest are as follows...

-G 1-99. 1 detects the lightest artefacts (1% change in green level). 99 detects only the largest artefacts (99% change). Default is 100, artefact detection/repair disabled.
-X Highlight artefacts in the output. If -G is not set, it uses 20%.

Terry

Thanks.
That was my feeling when I loaded this image for PP.
I'd have to say I'm pretty happy with the result even allowing for the dreadful perch.

[/COLOR]The Eastern Yellow Robins seem to be a lot more obliging than their red cousins.

With DFA 150-450 and K3. f8 @ 1/125 handheld.



A nice shot.
The Eastern Yellows can be very confiding, sometimes come almost too close. A friend had one perch on his foot!

Thanks.
yes, at the Werribee Treatment Plant (WTP).
This pair seem to have adopted the WTP as one of their residences and have nested here for a few years.
