New Holland Honeyeater by John Sharp

Canvas Prints

Available to buy on…

The South Western corner of Western Australia has an abundance of bird life. This New Holland Honeyeater was used to humans in the area and I was able to get close to capture this shot.
This photo was taken at Nornalup beside the Frankland River.
It is a very picturesque area with the Valley of the Giants, William Bay National Park and many lakes & rivers.

    Another great shot John. Now I’m thinking that I want that special close-up lens.

  • Thanks Michael for the comments. This was taken on holidays in WA, so I had to pack lightly! But this 50-200 Olympus Zuiko is superb!

    Fantastic close up! Even if they are used to humans still a hard capture due to how quickly they move. Great composition, congrats!

  • Thanks for the kind words Matt. They are very elusive and flighty, and just when you think you have a good shot, they depart! Luckily I was in the right spot this particular right time.
    Thanks again.
