The Roof Dance by Denzil

Currently unavailable for purchase

Available to buy on…

I am completely captivated by these little redbrows/firetails who now regularly visit my sweet little feeding station. One is so greedy and so brave, it simply sits inside the house gorging itself while others flutter at the door … or dance on the roof…

This image is a bit processed, as I’m still practising balancing my shutter speed with my film speed, using the big lens.

Canon EOS 400D, Canon EF 400mm L lens, 1:5:6,1/500th, ISO100.

    A nice shot Den. They sure are pretty aren’t they.

  • Thanks Al! They certainly are pretty – and this lot are so greedy, I reckon they’ll be feeding out my hand in a week!!!

    Wow, what a buzz that will be. Good luck.

  • Seriously, I am working on it … it’s just that the weather’s been lousy in the last couple of days … but give me few sunny days, and I’ll just sit there with my hand out, and see what happens!

    Once you put the food in your hand instead of in the feeding station, I’m sure they’ll be all over you :)

  • Funny thing – they’ve gone away lately … they’ll be back!
