Some more shots ....
I used Tracking - Zone and the second shot is one of a burst in which the focus landed on the Cockatoo's wings rather than beak or eye. Galer reckons it preferences central and closest but it wasn't hitting the closest here.

The Sulphur-crested Cockatoo is a large and raucous Australian parrot.

Pacific Black Ducks - Australia.

The wing flashes are iridescent and change colour according to the angle of the light falling on them.

Lens at 600mm, f 6.3, ISO 2500, 1/3000s.

1st image is cropped to about 2/3rds of the whole, the 2nd about 4/5ths.

I'm starting to get a feel for the lens and am pleased with these captures. It was on Tracking: Zone. I think I'll set the aperture default to f8.

My editor doesn't have a module for it and my impression now is that it isn't as sharp as my 100-400 & 1.4 TC, both racked out. But birds in full sun are a better test and it's winter in my mountain town darnit. Why can't it snow just at night?! :rolleyes:

Galer reckons Tracking: Wide will preference what's closest and central.

This used Tracking: Zone and it locked on central (the neck) but not closest - which in this case was the right thing.

Close crops leave me cold - all sugar hit, no meal.

It was needed here to get rid of a distraction that my editor couldn't cope with.
