Very desirable shot, Bill! Love the setting.

Another lovely shot, Bill!

As far as close-up of these beauties, Richard...this has got to be one of your very best!

The colors in this Canada goose shot are gorgeous, fotoi! Excellent capture!

Very cool, sharp shot, Gerd!

Splendid shot, James! Very attractive.

This is quite simply a gorgeous, appealing image, Steve! The variety of colors add tremendously to the overall beautiful composition of this shot.

The wigeon and the gadwall are both sterling images, Steve! Very nice work.

Thank you, Mike.

Many thanks Mike for your kind and encouraging comments

Our little friend at Howard Springs paid us another quick visit this morning. Well over 20 feet away though so still challenging for a 4 1/2" long bird in dark forest.

Eastern Rosella ~ Platycercus eximius
Dropped in earlier, a bit out of place here apparently
Have seen them on the coast, but not inland

Thank you, Richard.

They are a very interesting bird, I wouldn't say they are uncommon just not one that I see regularly.
