CommentWe came across a number of Singing Honeyeaters catching flies on kelp and other seaweed sp. piled up on the dark basalt rocky shoreline. This provided excellent opportunities for photography with the birds in the open and engaged in interesting feeding behaviour in an unusual setting. I snapped over 300 frames trying to catch the action but managed only two pictures with the bird snatching a fly out of the air, however, the images were not quite good enough to bother processing.

Manual, spot metering, AI Servo spot AF, f/7.1, 1/800 sec, ISO 400.
