Afternoon at a conservation park near Myponga in SA. It is quite overgrown and a bit shaded from the sun but a good place for a few birds. The Honeyeater was so engrossed in looking for insects that it allowed me to approach quite close. I use a Canon 7Dii with the Canon 100-400mm lens and a 1.4x teleconverter. settings were F/8,1/1000 sec, ISO 1000 at 560mm.
