Default White-cheeked honeyeater

My husband Mark took this photo of a white-cheeked honeyeater (phylidonyris nigra) with his new Nikon D3000 at Dangar Gorge in the Oxley Wild Rivers National Park yesterday.

A fascinating-looking bird! The wildlife in your region always amazes me.

According to the EXIF data, he used a rather slow shutter speed on this one. Wonder if a faster shutter speed might have allowed him to capture more of the detail...

Thank you mole. We find our wildlife fascinating too and we're taking the opportunities to get out into our surrounding National Parks as much as we can. We don't always know what the bird/animal/tree/flower is and so we're making great use of our flora and fauna book collections as well.

The shutter speed was automatic I think - but he was caught by surprise with the sudden appearance of the little fellow and threw the camera up on the setting he'd just used for a landscape shot. I think if he'd had time to 'zoom in' as it were and use more of the 300mm he would have had more detail.

Thanks again for the view of your wildlife. Will look forward to seeing more. Photos and field guides are a great combination, aren't they!
