Great shot Pippan. I always thought we only had one Darter here or is that another name for our Australasian Darter?

This is the male Regent Bowerbird and a close up of the male Satin Bowerbird taken in the Lamington National Park.:-)

The colour of the eye of the SBB is quite stunning.

Cheers

That's a stunning image all round Richard

Many thanks Russell, much appreciated.
The Raven one was a pleasant surprise. Driving out to watch the clouds and the beautiful light it presented itself so I stopped. Normally flies off at the whiff of a human but it hung around for a while

Long-tailed Finch and Crimson Finch. Lawn Hill, Qld

Those finches are magnificent.
Beautiful composition and from a low approach.

Looks to be beautiful scenery. A nature wonderland.

Thanks Richard. There was a water hole at Adels Grove that a couple of 4wd's had driven through and made a bit of a mess, pushed up wheel ruts etc. There were literally 100's of birds coming in at all times of the day drinking and bathing.

I just set up on the ground for a few hours each day...............heav​en:lol:
