Default Birds around my campsite

G'day all

Enjoying some time at a farm stay in northern New South Wales - weather is hot but okay, grass is beaut & green from recent rains, the pool is cool & wet and the birds are plentiful but damn hard to photograph as they flit to & fro between the bushes & trees

Here's a couple from the last few days ...

1) a dawn pic, heavily coloured by the first rays of sun

Panny FZ-2500; 1/1000s x F4,5; EV -0,7; 675mm [ff equiv]; ISO-125

2) the good ol' magpie seeking something in the grass

Panny FZ-2500; 1/2000s x F4,5; 475mm [ff equiv]; ISO-250

3) the inevitable willie-wagtail dancing across the grass

Panny FZ-2500; 1/2500s x F4,5; 475mm [ff equiv]; ISO-200

4) a honeyeater in the grevillia tree

Panny FZ-2500; 1/2000s x F4,5; 475mm [ff equiv]; ISO-200

As always, feedback welcome
Phil

Great photos. Love the Honey eater with the beautiful flower he/she was getting nectar from.

G'day LL & PRG

Thanks for your thoughts - always appreciated

LL - the Aussie Grevillia is a very popular garden tree ... you might be able to get one [if interested] from a special-order garden centre - if you do, you will be very pleased with the flowers & the abundance of birds chasing the nectar

Phil,


I would love to have this particular tree. However, I live in a very very cold climate and it would not survive here.
