Classified as 'Rare' in my resident state of Victoria, and only having been seen at one location this past summer, I was really happy to see not on but two Diamond Doves over the Easter Weekend.

I wish I could have gotten closer as even with 700mm these are large crops, but hey I was happy with a slice of 'lifer pie'.

Having been chasing a decent goldfinch shot for a long time, once a decent shot is achieved every time you leave the house from then on presents another golden opportunity and the lusted after shot soon becomes just another one of those goldfinches. Seems to happen often to me!
here's just another goldfinch :)

Mighty sly acting to me.
