ZS40: Lorikeet feeding on nectar
8 months ago

This is a shot taken with my ZS40 at 720mm of a Rainbow Lorikeet feeding on the nectar of the flowers on an Australian native Umbrella Tree (Schefflera actinophylla):

I also made a movie from clips using my ZS40 at 720mm, which can be viewed here: https://vimeo.com/92189489

The closeup view provided by 720mm and rendering in slo-mo in the movie made it possible to see the little brush these birds have at the end of the tongue for gathering the nectar.

I have noticed that the image stabilisation for hand-held movies at maximum zoom seems better at 720mm (equiv.) on the ZS40 than the ZS40 is at 480mm.
