A few new images

June 28, 2014

Hi guys,

 

my life’s been still crazy busy, so I didn’t have much time for bird photography. I manage one long weekend away with y girlfriend and got two new species on one day, which was pretty cool. Besides that I have spent a few hours trying to photography a few common species in my backyard.

I always enjoy the challenge of trying to create a unique image of a common species.

Here are some of the images. I will upload all image to my website soon.

 

Little Wattlebird (Anthochaera chrysoptera) on one of his favourite plants, a flowering banksia. Both image were taken within minutes of each other. You can see how a slight change in the light changes the scene dramatically. The first image had a bit of sunshine on the background, whereas the second image of pretty evenly lit.

Another bird I got on my short holiday was this weird looking White-winged Chough (Corcorax melanorhamphos). Seeing a flock of these birds is always a bit of a surreal experience, as they always making quite weird noises.

The following two images were taken in my backyard. It’s quite ironic that I had to come al the way to Australia to finally get a good Tree Sparrow ((Passer montanus) image 🙂
