You can walk up to about 5 metres (15ft) away then just stand there for a minute and slowly move forward.

In the end I just lay down to shoot and over the next 10 minutes the whole mob just slowly surrounded me from about 6ft away, they were more interested in eating the grass seeds than me and my camera.

Awesome colors!!!Probably worked out better this way. You might have gotten sand in your shoes (or worse:G) & then been cussing all the way home & would have missed these birds .... yadda yadda!

It was still better than a good day at work right?

It was a Saturday here, but yes a day shooting birds is better than working.:-)

The colours are as is, straight form the camera. Ever since I started using AdobeRGB colour space I really noticed an improvement in the colour, especially reds.

For those who might be interested here is another one of a lorikeet straight from the camera untouched and believe it or not image 5555 for this camera...:G

Amazing shots and definitely the best way to spend the weekend. The full size shot you have uploaded to the Au site is quite something.
