  • Thank you Steve, they sure stand out in the bush with that yellow
    chest, dont look much from the back view, bit like a robin its when they turn around to face you , then their true beauty is beheld

    Great effort. I have only had one chance at shooting these birds and it was quite friendly with the camera too. Well done. They have such a lovely sound. You took this one in WA, they are a rarer bird near Wagga in NSW. In 2 years of shooting birds, I’ve only seen 1.

  • Thank you for your comment, I guess im very fortunate
    there is about 4 pairs in foxes lair that i have seen so far
    this year. cheers rick

    I am jealous. I’ve only seen one twice, and neither time did he wait around for me to get a good photo

  • sometimes they just turn their back to you,
    then scoot of to another tree or just dont sit still long enough
    for you to focus , they got some attitude also. thank you for dropping by and commenting, appreciate it very much
    cheers Rick

    It would be a bit hard to hide with that brilliant colour so he/she would have to be a poser. Thanks for adding these photos to the group. The other Mike loves them too.

  • Michael suprizingly enough many people who walk the tracks
    in Foxes Lair have never seen this little beauty. I have been stopped many times in my walks to ask what I am taking photos of
    they are sure amazed at the colour. cheers rick
