Day 360/365: A Perfect Pair

We’re at Mum & Dad’s place for Christmas and it’s a bird haven here. I shot this perfect pair this morning while having my first cup of tea. Although I’m not an avid bird watcher or anything, they are a great subject to shoot, especially these guys which are very friendly!

Day 310/365: Gallant Galah

Three galahs were munching away in the young eucalyptus sapling out the back this morning. Here is one of the gallant little guys!

Day 250/365: Blue Wren

I was lucky enough to go out for lunch with some friends today, and this little wren was flitting about just off the balcony we were on. I’m not much of a bird watcher, but how could you not want to capture this bright little creature?

Day 217/365: Hello Cocky!

Still at Patonga, this little guy was playing up to the camera big time! And it turns out he is very photogenic! This is one of my best bird shots so far, there is definitely an art to bird photography that I will probably never conquer – too little patience and not a long enough lens for most shots.

Day 181/365: A Little Birdy Told Me

Another shot from my time on the beach at Seal Rocks last week. I just love reflections, would like to work on some planned ones at some stage…

Day 162/365: Nature in a Concrete Jungle

It doesn’t matter that the stone walls are high or the windows have bars, these little guys can still flit in & out as they please! Nature inside the walls of the stone jungle that is Trial Bay Gaol.
