A Red Wattle Bird captured in Kings Park, Perth, Western Australia. There was a pair, darting between the bushes, that I was trying to get in the same shot. It turned out to be too difficult, because as soon as one would land next to the other, the other would take off! In the end I settled for just capturing one (the better looking one off course).

We are living in Perth, Western Australia and after buying ourselves a shared DSLR for Xmas 2008 have developed a passion for photography. The addiction has now well and truly taken hold as has the need for one each (at least) of equipment!
In the immortal words of Gary Strang (Men Behaving Badly), “sharing is for people who can’t afford one each.”

Thanks for viewing our photos.

    Excellent shot. I have these same birds in my garden and although they can be noisy they are very friendly.

  • Thanks Ian, yes they are definitely interesting to watch and their loud calls are unmistakable!
