These photos are from a 30 minute photography session at Eastern Park. I wasn’t able to learn much about their behaviour other then that they remind me very much like hummingbirds. They are secretive and incredible hard to photograph.
I did make an effort to photograph them at high speed but failed. Apparently the Canon 600d doesn’t allow you to do more then 1/250 shutter speed when the flash is raised. I’m stumped at how I can get high speed photographs without the images being too dark.
This session was worth it for the learning. Their behaviour reminded me of hummingbirds, so I’m also interested in researching other Aussie birds with similar behaviour.
