Sometimes you get lucky

lorikeet landing

I do apologise for the grainyness of this shot, but what a pose! I had just started playing with the "sport" mode on the Fuji S6500fd so I wasn't sure how well it would work in low light conditions. It was a cloudy morning and the sun was just up. The rainbow lorikeets were being very active on the feeder so I zoomed in on the feeder, pre-focused on it, set the camera to "sport" mode in the scene select, and then held down the shutter on continuous mode for about 30 seconds while holding the camera steady.
