Birds seem to be seeking me out....

Must be the new, big lens. Whilst photographing the ruins at the Saltwater River Penal settlement the other day, a female scarlet robin dropped in to drag my attention away for a moment.

Alan, I like the colors and composition - a lovely little bird. 

How do you like the handling of the new lens?

I love using it - some say it's too big and heavy, but personally I think that has more to do with the way some people hold the camera than the lens itself. In my book the left hand belongs on holding the lens, not trying to grip the left side of the camera body. In the proper hold there's no such thing as an "out of balance" lens.

As far as these birds go, I do like the way robins look so cute but in reality are vicious bloody murderers of insects of any description! :lol:
