Parakeet in flight

I've been trying to capture a Parakeet in flight since 2002 - but  March 28 was my lucky day.

I was on way to the house to get a coffee and saw them land in the tree a couple of gardens away, so rush back in the office grabbed my camera and as I was burst firing one sitting in the tree he took flight.

I couldn't believe it when I looked and I'd not only got him but he was nice and sharp!
I was well impressed how good a job my Olympus E-P3 had done, considering I handheld fired using a 300mm (600mm 35 equivalent).

Olympus you ROCK!! This camera is so good!
