I don't know what kind of a hummingbird that is, but it's one that I don't think I have seen even in a picture before.
Really nice shot too.

Lots of Blue and Great tits around. Light was not so wonderful, but these 2 posed perfectly still for me.

You were really on a roll with those last few shots, Paul. I like the Goosander especially - they never come close enough for me to get such good quality.

Great shot! Better than any I got when I went there a few weeks ago.

We finally had some sunshine today, so I went out to see if I could find some birds. And I did. Like this little Blue Tit.

That is just unreal, Levina! It almost looks like a cartoon, a good cartoon, or a painting... :)
Is this your 300mm with a 2X converter on it?

Nice pic, although it's a bit dark on my screen. BTW, I had no idea of the disparity in sizes of the two birds. Is it that the Pelican is huge (I've never seen one in the flesh), or the Ibis very small?

I also had no idea your ibis were so small (or your pelicans so big). Australian ibis and Australian pelicans are much closer in size, though of course pelicans are still bigger.
