Took these shots today with the 300d with canon 100-300 lens. ISO 400, F8, shutter speed varied between 1/100 and 1/400. Focal length between 240 and 300mm as I got quite close to these guys. This bird is as common here as a chickadee is over in America in some places. They are noisy little things and sip up the nectar of the local native plants such as the kangaroo paw and bottle brush in this set of shots.

There is something about these little guys that I like. I can't put my finger on it.
It might be that flare of feathers under the chin. Or maybe that look they get on their face? I don't know....

But keep them coming. This is a nice set.

Nice action series Julie. I like the one with his beak stuck up the plant getting the nectar. Great work
