This beautiful female satin bower bird was really posing for me in my garden. They are generally a very shy and nervous bird around humans, so I was very surprised how still she kept. I was getting some shots of the cockatoos but this little lady was determined to shine! thanks for visiting, Taken with my Kodak Z8612IS on an auto setting and zoomed about 5×. This image is straight from the camera

    Valerie, this is wonderful!!! We seldom even see a picture of a female satin bower bird in bird books, and here you are, with your very own model willing to pose for you!! Isn’t she lovely? You could not have done a better job of photographing her, either – every feather is beautifully clear! Well done!!!

  • Thank you so much Jan for your wonderful comment, we have lots of bower birds here, we also have a green catbird which I am still trying to get a shot of, cheers and lovely to hear from you- Valerie xxx
