Ahhh, great shots, everyone! Such a variety.
I got over my A700 BF -hump - I think this was largely to a misunderstanding of how the AF works - and lacking technique when working with the 400/4.5. Also, I might try to turn off SSS when using a monopod in the future- I'm just saying this if someone is also experiencing effects that look like BF.
Want to contribute to this thread but need to process files first...
best regards,
Bernd

Nah, a birds a bird wherever you find them. It's just more of a challenge to get good shots of them in the field.

Darren - no I'm not saying that you shouldn't post captive birds. What I meant was that for such an iconic Australian bird, I've never seen them in the wild. They live in the desert regions, so not seen in the metro area.

Cheers, Frank

Humming bird in a nest above my driveway. I stood on the roof of my truck to get the shot. Earlier she was feeding there babies, but I was too slow....

Being shot out of a cannon will always be better than being squeezed out of a tube.

And here's a few more.
These were all shot handheld with the 500 Reflex. I've reworked these a little with some minor PP, since I felt the out-of-camera shots lacked a little something. Hope nobody minds.

Wading Pool.




On the Hunt.




Private Meal.




You can see some of the recognizable Mirror Lens bokeh in the third one.
Somewhat of a distraction, perhaps, but not too bad for this lens.

Count the tiny duckies!

Done with a MD 135/2.8 wide open and with manual focus they are a little fuzzy, but here it actually gives some sort of a painterly effect:

Here's a few from early last Saturday morning on the Campaspe River in north-western Victoria. There were hundreds of these fellas making a terrible racket.
