This morning when I opened my curtains, I saw this Osprey flying over the pond. I quickly got my kit and opened the window.... A great way to start the day!

Wonderful capture of this Great Crested Flycatcher, Steve! The shot is so sharp and vivid. It simply looks alive.

This shot really is an eye grabber, Richard! It's very sharp plus the eye contact is great. I'm sure he appreciates the cockatoos.;-)a

These are both outstanding shots, Mike! My favorite, however, is the flight shot. I love it.

Both of these Black-bellied whistling duck shots are Very nice, Joe! I must admit to liking the first shot of the pair together, as my favorite.

The sharpness and detail of this sandhill crane close-up are remarkable, Paul!

Well I FINALLY got amongst the feast of normally rare (and endangered) Gouldian Finches that have been attracting birdos from far and wide to Lee Point, near Darwin, during their late afternoon feeding frenzy. Very, very satisfying.

Sadly, no, criminally, the area they are in is earmarked for imminent destruction to satisfy the greed of housing developers. The bull-dozers and jack-hammers are less than 100 metres from these feeding grounds and getting closer.

Still waiting for the wisdom they promised would be worth getting old for.
