My wife was interested in the photo - she is the birdwatcher.

I'd focus on the middle and try to get the entire family in focus - but that perhaps is just me.

Nice DOF and isolation on the trailing adult. Quite unusual looking birds!

Fair enough!

I actually focussed on the Cygnets, but the focal plane looks like it's just behind them (time between focus and shutter release). With the 1.4x TC on the DFA 150-450 I'd have needed bright direct sunlight to use a small enough aperture for that much DOF.

They're endemic to Australia, yes, although they can be found in most parts of the continent where there's bodies of water other than the far northern coast. They can be seen all the way up the East coast as far as Cairns.
