Shot a few days ago.......

I was about 1 1/2 meters away and at 2.8 not a lot of DOF being this close. When the birds are this close you only get a few seconds to shoot..... full frame image, hand held, D300 Sigma 300 2.8 prime 1000th@ 2.8

Nice! Beautiful colours. Any PP?
Does this animal live in the wild over there in Aussieland?

BTW. Can you see much of your own reflection when you enlarge the eye?

Yes a wild bird, but can become quite tame with food, there are lots of natives schrubs where the birds feed in my garden and that is all they have at my place. Some of the plants are close to the front deck where the birds feed, so very slow movement will get you very close on some days...... any sort of movement on other days and the birds just take off

I like both but I prefer the Velvia one. Maybe it's just me but I really like the look of Velvia.

That's news to me. To the best of my knowledge it's considered to be 'Colloquial' or 'Informal'. Certainly no insult was intended.

But you're lucky to have such beautiful wildlife around. Great photo-ops.
