Bird on a stick! How does it manage to fold such a long leg out of sight! Very pretty.

Melissa6 wrote in post #18768171 (external link)
:lol: I was wondering how it manages to keep it's balance on such a teeny tiny tall leg! :lol:

Very nice shot, Sibil. :-)

Cool pose, Sibil. Kind of looks like he's using a pogo, stick. :-)

Spotted pardalote. A very small bird. (approx. 6 grams / 0.21 oz)
Really hard to get a photo of one, I managed to get this one in the viewfinder and was amazed to discover that when they make their very high pitched call, they stretch their body.
Relaxed, then calling:

Here is one I took a couple of months ago when playing with the EOS M50. For some reason the page said the image suddenly said that the image was no longer available, possibly because I darkened it slightly on Flickr so I have reposted it here.
