Nankeen Kestrel on the wing.

I've tried so many times to get a half decent shot of these it's not funny.

I just spent a few days in the Lamington National Park, a little cool this time of year.:-)

Here we have a Lewin’s Honeyeater and a Male Australian King-Parrot, taken near the Border Track entrance.

The birds are quite comfortable near people due to the feeding sessions at the O’Reilly’s Lodge, where there is an early morning bird walk for guests at the Lodge.

Cheers

Dennis

Wow Dennis, these are so sharp and the colours so rich. The R3 seems to work well for you!


Still waiting for the wisdom they promised would be worth getting old for.

Thanks, the 300mm F2.8L Mk II performed superbly in the rainforest where it can be quite dark, especially in the winter months.

The low light capability and the eye AF of the R3 were brilliant.

Cheers

Dennis

An Eastern Yellow Robin perched in a classical pose on the side of a sapling in the rainforest in the Lamington National Park and a Red-browed Finch, both quite small birds.

Cheers

Male Satin Bowerbird and a Yellow-throated Scrubwren (small bird).

The combination of the Canon EOS R3 and EF 300mm F2.8L IS USM Mk II really helped dig these rainforest birds out of the gloom of the forest floor. Very impressed with the Eye AF on this camera.:-)

Cheers

Dennis

This is a Log Runner in the gloom of the rainforest floor and I under exposed in my excitement upon finding the bird.

I have attached the processed and raw views to show how the Canon EOS R3 Eye AF even worked under these conditions, where the eye was also partially obscured by forest floor material in the bird's beak.

Cheers

Dennis

Beautiful series Dennis
The Eastern Yellow Robin is such a lovely bird and I'm somewhat envious of you people over the waters.

a few from today
The common old screeching Sulphur Crested Cockatoo. The made a din like no other today.

Plovers are hatching or hatched and there was a lovely couple who were not happy with the presence of another around its chicks.
Not sure I've experienced such aggressive behaviour towards a fellow plover before
I see there's an egg still to be hatched. The chicks are not tiny so not sure if the egg is past its time or still to hatch
first photo is near me, the others in a different town

Thanks Lyn.
They sure are cute :-)
There was something special about the parent looking over those tiny plovers.
Interesting interaction.

This picture looks so low noise and smooth for ISO 6400, Pippan, I can’t wait to get my hands the R7.
