Azure Kingfishers and some other stuff

A couple of azure kingfishers have returned to our local billabong. Unfortunately it is difficult to get a clear shot of them due a lot of overhanging branches and leaves, In addition the light is poor and the coming from the wrong direction.

Anyway took a few handheld shots with the new 0 antishock setting and IS1 enabled. Shutter speeds were only between 60 and 80 seconds.

Captured the pair of them together but they were too far way for a good quality image.

This one is better due to being a lot closer but still  under the shade and backlit.

Same as above

Yellow faced Honeyeater. This fellow perched right in front of me and whilst ithe lighting looks okay it was again backlit and I was shooting at ISO 1600 and still only got  a SS of 60sec. But I was pleased with the detail  achieved.

The following images were from another day.
