Brown Thrashers - "Hey Mister...can ya help a buddy out and share some mealworms"?

How did you get such a crisp close picture like that? What is your camera setup?
All my lenses are manual Canon lenses from film days back in the '80's, with an adapter on a Sony NEX7 digital.
They work great but don't have any of today's automation...I manually set the ISO on the camera which was 800 for these Thrasher shots, and manually set the Aperture.
Then shooting the camera in Aperture Priority mode, depending on the amount of light coming through whatever Aperture I set, the camera sets the Shutter Speed, in this case it was 1/80.
