Another image from my recent morning photo shoot of the Australian Reed-warblers in my local park in Nairne, Adelaide Hills, South Australia. Taken in September 2011. A very shy little bird, they are most often heard singing a beautiful song.

This image featured in I Love Birds! in September 2011. Thank you moderators!

And a feature today in The Birds, 1 October 2011. Thanks so much!

I live in the beautiful Adelaide Hills of South Australia which are a constant inspiration to me in my photography. As an observer of nature and the world around around me, I find many subjects here which I try to portray in an artistic and interesting way. Please contact me if there are any of my images you wish to purchase or otherwise use.

  • Sure can Kathy….. but it’s not really a pond any more, just a reed bed…. but there’s birds in there!! Let me know when you are free to come up!

    Gorgeous capture. I love warblers. They are always so pert and energetic.

  • You are so right Bunny – I have a soft spot for them, they seem to sing their little hearts out, LOL…. and they are so secretive it’s hard to get a shot so I was more than happy to get this one!!

    this is incredible Barb! Has to be one of your very best I reckon! :)

  • thank you indeed Paula!! Yes I had a very good morning, light was right, birds were singing, and they even sat nicely for me without sticks getting in front of them, so I was very happy indeed to get off a few good shots. I am hoping to do well in camera club with these, fingers crossed!!
