    Have not been shooting lately due to heavy work commitments and the very RECENT birth of my daughter.

    She is only 13 days old ! and she is not even registered yet !!!!

    However, managed to get a few hours time off from the Mrs and shot this fella in a neighbourhood park.

    very nice bokeh man!
    why I don't do garden hybrids and aquarium strains: natural species is a history of Nature, while hybrids are just the whims of Man.

    Excellent indeed! The first shot is almost gravity defying.

    Cheers,
    I have dwarf cichlids in my tanks! Do you?

    Very nice shots and congrats on your newborn. By the way, I notice you use flash for these shots. How far is the subject? Can your flash reach?

    distance.....i am not so sure but the pixs are 80-70% of full frame.

    the flash was just a fill, just enough to "lightly paint" the bird, the chest "blows" very easily.
