A beautiful Australian Hobby perched on a barbed wire fence during a particularly windy day at Greenethorpe NSW Australia.
Hobbies are often mistaken for Peregrine Falcons but are a smaller bird. They are an incredibly fast level flyer and will take other birds on the wing with ease.

I love photography and especially bird photography which is one of the most challenging and beautiful of subjects. Hope you enjoy the photos as much as I had taking them.

    What an excellent close up, Phillip. Good on you. Great detail and colour

  • Thanks Moorey… yep I snuck up on this one and being a very windy day it didn’t seem too eager to decamp. I was hoping to get one of it in flight but it took off as I was changing cards.
