These guys are a bit hard to photograph when they are on the move but I managed to sneak up of these ones today while walking in the bush, the weather was Ok, around 20C which is cool for this time of the year so walking through the bush was not too bad. In the hot weather I wont do this.:-)Converting for the net does not help these shots much:sad:They were taken with my 300D and 100-300 usm canon lens.



Caught this one on a fence line to another property









What a showoff





these ones were settling down for the night

Great work, Julie! I especially like the details in the third shot... the "hairs" on the beak.

20C, eh? I wish!:-)

Cheers,

By the way, what species is this? It's like our common sparrow, but the tail is much longer.

Thanks all for the comments, I have just realized that my photos look yuk since I started using a batch resize programme. Think unless I have heaps I will do them one at a time.

Nice shots of a beautiful bird! I don't know of any birds around in the states that fan there tails like that other than some of the game birds like Grouse or Turkeys. You definitely have a wonderful variety of subjects to photograph Julie.
