Obviously a great spot for photographing birds. I like the first shot of the two vultures standing together.

Thanks Mike. Indeed it is a nice place to shoot. Not many folks come that way and the birds feel more comfortable. It is a nice place to shoot from as well.

Yellow Wattlebird ~ Anthochaera paradoxa
The Yellow Wattlebird occurs only in Tasmania and is Australia’s largest honeyeater.
Feeding on our apple tree.
Beautiful birds with a very characteristic call which to me is very pleasant.

Wonderful shot, fantastic pose, Lester!

That's a really nice, full frontal look that we don't often see of the little treehuggers :)
