  1. Some nice pics & great looking species since I last looked...
  2. As far as I'm aware it's only found in Australia, New Guinea, New Zealand...
  3. Without a doubt Canon's 100-400mm. It night be more expensive than other options but it is worth it.
  4. @Galana Ah, maybe it's because none of the migratory waders breed in Australia hence they're not so territorial.
  5. Greenshank in #89 is a lovely image & so is the 1st shot of the Common Sandpiper in #92. I've never seen a Common Sandpiper perched like that. Is it unusual? Though i don't see Common Sandpipers all that often. I would see more in a week at SLNP than at home for a whole year.
  6. Both BB roller species are lovely looking birds.
  7. I never knew a Greater Crested tern was also called Swift tern. 166 already!! Incredible.
  8. Nice lighting in the quelea flight shot.
  9. Not from what I've seen.
  10. Yeah, it's me. Standing on a step ladder.
  11. Neat. How much time is involved in a piece like the aardwolfs?
  12. @kittykat23uk It's your turn.
  13. Yes, good point. All of the above were taken with a walk around setup. A 7D ii with 100-400mm lens. Most images were at 400mm. The osprey on beach was at 370mm (592mm equivalent FOV) . The frogmouth in tree was at 150mm (240mm), though I've taken images of them with a 100mm macro. Now that January school holidays are over and the extended family has gone home I will do some photography with the 1DX ii with usually 600mm + 1.4TC attached and I don't need to get/want so close.
  14. 5. Eastern Reef Egret (Egretta sacra) ~ Grey Morph. Still in Queensland. My consolation prize. This bird landed on a rockshelf where I was waiting for tattlers that were there the previous day (when I didn't have my camera) but were a no show.
  15. 4. Brahminy Kite (Haliastur indus) Same location as the ospreys. Less than ideal conditions ~ Very strong afternoon light. Scruffy individual Roosting pair, backlit.
