Another Oz "Superb Fairy-wren". I was out early trying to "come to grips" with this new camera.

Taken just after the crack of dawn - I could hardly see this little fella in the shadows of the bush, with a little light starting to filter through - I think I set the ISO to 1000, and was pleased with the way this turned out.

Better large.

Absolutely outstanding Bill. The best by far. Superb plumage detail, a great eye catchlight and focus as sharp as a new razor. Top dollar. Got to be worth an award.

A great little bird bill and a lovely detailed shot with your new camera Bill, did you take this with the 1.5 crop in place or did you take it at full frame, hope you know what I mean,
