As suggested by another forum member Ron, I have modified some focus trap method to suit the local situation. Just uploaded these few hummer shots taken Jul 22 weekend. This time I have a way of getting real close and I used a 135mmF2.8 instead.



































Large file warning for this one

You sure did get close, how did you do the trap focus?

Basically I have modified whatever Ron mentioned and plugged up 3 other waterpoints of the feeder. As I have a way of hiding myself and I got to use the only lens I have other than 300mm. Even with FA135mm I have to focus manually except I have few spots to focus.
Still difficult as they are with very shallow DoF at F4.5, Man that was dim , shallow and tricky. I got through ok I believe.
Unlike Canon , there is no intuitive focusing at all. Even if I use ultra fast FA135mm, it will still be too slow. Pentax has a bit to catch up even with the DA*zoom.
I just have to make do with whatever I have. Fast birdie shots are not the pros/selling points of Pentax lens system.
