Hi aladyforty

Love your photos! However do disapprove of calling a New Holland Honeyeater "Common"!

Thanks and cheers

Lovely series and a pleasure to see birds that we don't see here. I particularly like the shot of the swallow diving. It's a really nice motion capture. What shutter speed were you using?
