Feeding time for Goldfinch fledgling, OM-1 + 40-150f4

another bird related set I fear but its a series I don't think I have ever been able to record before with the EM-1X or 1mk3

The fledgling was hidden inside the foliage of a large Salvia shrub and I became aware something was going on when we saw the adults hopping about peering into it as if looking for something

I managed to get the conservatory door open and shot these through the gap at around 10ft.

Set using Bird AI, single point, CAF ProCap, a lot of the time the camera locked onto the fledgling before I could see it.

It wasn't perfect by any means as the bird kept hiding behind the foliage but if the eye became clear it seemed to lock on most if not all the time

I've just spotted that the first two were in fact shot using my 75-300 mk2 (old age is right pain!)

So much to learn, so little time left to do it!
