Amazing photos Dennis
Interesting how both have very attractive plumage .
More often one is highly coloured and other somewhat drab

Thanks Richard, these are very attractive birds to watch.:-)

Cheers

Dennis

Very nice. Those Pelicans are great. I’d love to see some of your birds in real life.

Great shots, Dennis. You’ve captured the plumage well.

The Australian Logrunner is a small, robust, ground-dwelling bird, with a short and sturdy bill. The short wings are rounded and the short, broad tail has obvious spines at the end.

Adult male birds have a grey face and sides, and are white underneath, olive-rufous above, with grey bars across the wing. Adult females are similar but have an orange-rufous throat. The Logrunner feeds on invertebrates. They forage on the forest floor scratching with their large, strong feet through the leaf litter, using their tail as a prop. They leave a trail of small cleared circles behind them as they feed.

This pair posed nicely for me, on top of a log, although I had to dig them out of the dark Rainforest undergrowth using an on-camera Speedlite.:-)

Cheers

Dennis

Thanks Ray, the light was a little flat at 5:18am when these were taken, as the sun had not yet peeked its head above the forest ridge.:-)
Cheers

Never seen these before Dennis. It must have been very dark even with a speedlight, your settings give it away.

Yes - it was a dull day and even at F2.8 I had to use the Speedlite. After a few hit and misses, I decided a flatly illuminated bird with some texture, is better than a grainy one in deep shadow.:-);-)a

A couple of Superb Fairy-wrens hopping around near the picnic tables in the Lamington National Park.

The Male is the blue coloured show-off, whereas the female presents in the more conservative, muted garb.:-)

Cheers

Thanks Pippan. Problem is just that my passport expired a couple of years ago - as I found out when I decided to nip over to annoy our nearest neighbours and I never bothered to renew it because of the long delays at the passport office. Anyway, they don’t speak English and they insist on driving on the wrong side of the road, and they drink litres and measure their distance in km!.:-)

Ray, Pippan invited you to Darwin. Not Tasmania.
That's what they do here  :p

Well that reads well.
You are definitely welcome here. :-)
