Sulphur-winged Parakeets at the limits!

Sulphur-winged Parakeets at the absolute limits of what the Sony Rx10iv (or about any camera) is capable of. They flew overhead several times while we watched from beside the Savegre River just below Savegre Mountain Hotel, Resort, and Reserve in San Gerardo de Dota, Costa Rica, and then settled in an apple tree waaay up the side of the mountain. I could not see them with my naked eye, green against green, and kept losing and then having to refind the right tree. I could barely see them through the viewfinder of the camera. This shot is at 1200mm equivalent on the Sony, using 2x Clear Image (digital) Zoom, and then cropped to between 1 and 2 mega pixels from the 20mp frame. Absolute limits! I would have loved to have had them closer, but we make do with what we are given. 🙂 Sony Rx10iv as above. Program mode with my custom birds and wildlife modifications.
