Fig birds eating berries

My project at the moment is to photograph Fig Birds eating berries. Plenty of berries on the mulberry bush so that is sorted. Several Fig Birds around so that sorted.

This morning used 5Ds with Sigma C 150-600 with 1.4 converter. The auto focus worked ok. Problem was trying to avoid twigs and leaves.

Will get a cheap kid's tent from town in a day or two to use as a hide.

Hopefully I will be lucky enough to get a direct uncluttered line of sight to the birds.

This mornings results: [ not much good but a start ]
