Lovely, sharp shots of a bird I've not seen here before. Is that colour noise in the wings? I wouldn't expect that at ISO 400.

Took my new 600 II out for a test drive this evening. Still shooting handheld, a little more challenging than the 500, but not by much.

Had a super time playing with these guys today. Gave the 1Div a good shoot to boot.

He’s in a bit of a moult but still very cool.

I can see why. they are rather fascinating birds, and i can appreciate in better attire would be extra beautiful.

Thanks, it must be some hard work for the parents of all these little ones. All the adults of the bird population here are looking ratty. With all the clean groomed looking young.
