this poor thing somehow got locked in my workshop.
I gather its open beak is a distress thing?
It disappeared after I'd left doors open and departed.

They are beautifully marked even if they are a pest!

(For Ray Petri!) The arrow head markings remind me of their heritage, or rather ours in Van Diemens Land. The convicts were adorned with garb stamped with arrows. They would have bought these with them!:rolleyes:

I can't get over what a pretty brightly colored bird this is. Great shot, Shalu.

Thanks Mike. Praise from you is praise indeed!:-)
Since I was ganged-up on I have eased up on the sharpening tool a bit.:-)

I can tell you one thing for sure, Ray. These shots are very nice and sharp, but not over sharpened. See what great results ganging up accomplished!! ;-)a:lol:

Funny thing you jumped in first Richard, I was working out a comment before I saw your comment. :-)

Note: the EXIF info for my recent images shows "Sony FE 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6 GM OSS". I'm actually shooting an FE 200-600mm f/5.6-6.3 G OSS lens. The POTN gear database needs to be updated.

Very nice indeed. Beautifully presented.
Love the composition.
(also take interest in fences and wire. That's old barbed wire!)

Welcome aboard.
Love that photo. Stork has some large competition in the background. Puts its size into perspective.
Similarly your Female Red Winged Blackbird also. Beautiful composition, colours and composition.

Magnificent. Lovely vibrant colours. Very nice composition, and bird.
You've caught that very well.

What an awesome beauty.
Magnificent owl. Sort of photo I'd print and hang in a conspicuous place.
Very nice indeed.


Thank you for welcoming me and the encouragement! I’m excited to get involved here
