Thanks. There is a spot that must have great food, as the pair don't seem to care much about the old guy with the camera. I use a 100-400 zoom (Sigma) and I was only about 2 metres away.

Beaut capture Grayson, I found some in one of my haunts the other day. Mating and keeping to thick cover. Need to revisit with more time.

Nice detail, Greyson.

I caught this young suitor gathering yellow flowers for a festy female.

Thanks Greyson. The male offers the female yellow flowers or petals, it's part of their courtship ritual. 


I changed tack and concentrated on capturing a few shots as it flitted about.

Camera was set at 10fps for a bird that is not in the habit of posing for more than a second or two.
Settings: 1/2500, F4, ISO 400, 210mm, shot and processed in RAW

I went out looking for nice pictures and nice pictures came looking for me.
