Wonderful series with absolutely gorgeous light! The second one is so sweet and I love the subtle tones. Lovely bokeh too.

Those wetlands look to be a great place to spend the day. TFS this series.

After viewing this and Ed's thread, I guess Australia is the place to visit for bird life. Thanks for sharing, enjoyed the views here.

Your walk was certainly profitable photographically - these are terrific.

Thanks Ed. It's just unfortunate I had to take the photo head-on. The beak and eyes got lost in the fluff.

Thanks Tess. I know you are a morning person and, in my opinion, the best light in Australia for flora and fauna occurs in the early morning.

That's certainly true Susan. I was only there 90 mins and the place was alive!

Yes we're not short of birds here Bob. I understand that there are about 730 Australian birds, so you don't have to go far to see a fair variety.

Great series
Thanks very much. You may be interested to know that the first 2 birds are the same species - male and female Fairy Wrens with the male referred to as the Superb Fairy Wren.

Yes I intend to do that now that the furnace heat of summer here in SA has subsided. TFL.
