Actually you are sort of wrong....big guns doesn't always win....

the 600mm has a minimum focus distance of 6m, which means i have to literally stand far behind those tight spots just to get this kind of shots. The sunbirds at MOG are really human friendly.

Almost had the opportunity for a little juvenile landing on my palm. It must have mistaken my palm as a ginger flower. Of course it taste salty rather than sweet nectar. :D

Now i'm beginning to miss my old Sigma 120-300mm F2.8.

I see...... :embrass: 6m is indeed kind of far for these friendly birds. :think:

I think I will go and try my hands on at MOG one of these days (maybe next month if my leaves are approved). I supposed the human traffic there will not be as heavy as SBG?

Wah. Next time I go shooting, must borrow your palm so that I can do some macro shots of these crimsons. :D Is it for loan? :bsmilie:

Hi Philip, well done in capturing the action. This is certainly a difficult shot.

However, I personally think that it would be a winner if the focus is as sharp as the orchid plant in front and can also do with less noise.

Cheers :)

Thanks Peng Eik. Well it was a lucky shot though.

As for the focus part, i do admit it is not as sharp as the plant infront. Wasn't ready for this action as lens was locked down framing the tiny bird and waiting for the right nova to appear. Then it all happened.... :cry:
