1sst image was published in March/April edition Australian Geographic. Don't know why they picked the first as I think the other two are better

It could be the composition, or they wanted to show more of the bird's native surroundings, or the other images would have made an overwhelming splash of bright red that would have been excessive for the designated spot on the page, or . . .


PRONOUN ADVISORY: OhLook is a she. | A FEW CORRECT SPELLINGS: lens, aperture, amateur, hobbyist, per se, raccoon, whoa, more so (2 wds.), shoo-in | IMAGE EDITING OK

Kev, congratulations on being published, that's good stuff! The editor who chose the final photo must not be a bird photographer, #'s 2 and 3 have the better poses :p

Lester...All three of those are very nice shots. Our rails out here are so shy, that I've never even come close to getting a shot of one. :oops:

Thanks Mike. I have had ones closer, this was a way off. They are only so easy to see at this particular reserve which is fenced to keep out larger predators. Even then it is only occasionally I spot one.
