Grey Fantail (Rhipidura fuliginosa) - Cranky Fan
Partly showing its fanned tail.
They are a real show when they fan out their tails.

Nice head shot.
Good to see them feature. They're fascinating birds IMO.

Sure, until a family of them perches high up in a big gum tree that overhangs your pool, from where they fertilise your deck and swimming pool each night. This is how I found out that you're not allowed to shoot the buggers.


5D3, 7D2, EF 16-35 f/2.8L, EF 24-105 f/4L, EF 70-200 f/2.8L II, EF 100-400 f/4.5-5.6L II, EF 1.4x III, Sigma 150mm macro, Lumix LX100 plus a cupboard full of bags, tripods, flashes & stuff.

Yes well - like all things out of place.
My endearment came from the wild places of Q'land yonks ago when we were camped out in the scrub.

Nice sharp & detailed close-up
Interesting, they're different to our crows.
Particularly the eyes. Not sure how big the beaks are.

This ain't quite up to that standard but post for the comparison of bird

Giving you a flashy wing pose. I see you are using a 400mm F2.8 with the 2x too. We need that 800mm reach :lol:
