Tasmanian Native Hen sheltering her (?) chicks from the rain. They'd keep popping out for a look then dive back under.
I watched them for about 20 minutes, fascinated by the whole tribe caring for each others needs.

Fascinating, indeed Richard. I didn't notice the one in front until I looked a 2nd time.
Very neat capture.

I saw a huge number of Goldcrests today on our trip to an island at the west coast of Finland.
There were probably more than thousand of them looking for food before starting their migration.
They move very fast in the trees.

Just an unexpected encounter. We were both surprised to see each other. Mr. Osprey flew away in a sec.
