A few shots from late this afternoon. After posing for my BIFs session, as a reward, I helped him catch 3 fish for dinner.  7D, 70-200L 2.8 IS ii @115mm, 1/1600s, F/5.0, ISO 200

The octopus tree in my yard is starting to bloom and attracting some birds and bees. I climbed up a step ladder to shoot a few common waxbills this afternoon. They are very skittish and move very fast. The shutter firing on my 7D is loud enough to often make them fly off until they start to accept it. They are often so fast, that take off at shutter sound makes them a blur. They are quite small and average about 3-4 inches in length. 7D, 100-400mmL @ 400mm, 1/640s, F/6.3, ISO 125 and 400.

From Wikipedia:
The Common Waxbill (Estrilda astrild), also known as the St Helena Waxbill, is a small passerine bird belonging to the estrildid finch family. It is native to sub-Saharan Africa but has been introduced to many other regions of the world and now has an estimated global extent of occurrence of 10,000,000 km². It is popular and easy to keep in captivity.There are about 17 subspecies distributed widely across much of Africa south of the Sahara. They are present in most parts of East, Central and Southern Africa.Birds have often escaped from captivity or been deliberately released. Breeding populations have become established in many places where the climate is sufficiently warm and where there is a sufficient supply of grass seeds. They are now found on many islands around Africa: Saint Helena, Ascension Island, the Cape Verde Islands, São Tomé and Príncipe, Mauritius, Réunion, Rodrigues, the Seychelles and Ile Amsterdam. They may possibly be native on some of these islands. In Europe the Common Waxbill has become widespread in Portugal and is spreading through Spain. There are small populations on Madeira and Gran Canaria and it has recently appeared on Tenerife and the Azores. In the Americas waxbills are found in Trinidad, several parts of Brazil and there are a few on Bermuda. In the Pacific there are populations on New Caledonia, Efate Island in Vanuatu, Tahiti and the Hawaiian Islands.

And finally, while I was up the ladder this afternoon shooting the waxbills, my Brazilian Cardinal friend landed in the octopus tree a few feet from me begging for another bread handout (even though I had already given him a whole slice just 30 minutes earlier). So I got down and gave him more.
