Some birds were out this morning so I thought I'd give 'birding' a try. MF lens is not the best way to go, especially with hummers.

Here's a Rainbow Lorikeet couple. They were climbing over each other to get at the pollen and then kindly helped clean it off each others' face.

Pushing the envelope here, with a 2xTC on the 100-400 mounted on the A7R III.
The detail is pretty good. Sharpening in post has to be treated with respect. AF was set to zone and focus confirmed with a large box, not the little dancing boxes. Maximum aperture is f11 and I expect that AF was CD only. Focus was fairly slow. Grabshots of BiF mostly locked on the background but the light was low and the birds towards the side of the frame.

Got caught with the wrong camera/lens out on my walk today, but did manage to catch this hawk being harassed by the local crow population.

Good effort.

Backlight like that, I add 1.5 EV.
I was standing out in a neighbors driveway, talking about the corona and his TR250, when we noticed the crows causing a ruckus. My camera had my shirt wrapped over it so it wasn't easily accessible. It was all I could do to get the camera out and turned on, let alone site the birds in the view finder with them being almost directly overhead. I wasn't prepared at all. Feel really lucky to have gotten what I did, so thanks.

Pacific Black Ducks are common as dirt down here so a photo has to have some extra to cut through innured vision. In this one I was taken with the texture and colour range in the wing feathers.
