  1. Really nice photos again Ashley, and your wife’s photo of the kingfisher is beautiful. I like the video of the honeyeater trying to feed from the bottlebrush on a windy day. 🙂

    • Thanks Sue, yes she took the best pic on this occasion with her little Lumix camera, this little bird is so elusive and fast. The New Holands are always fun to watch feed, they are so active and industrious. Have a great week!

  2. The New Holland Honeyeater is certainly very agile! It is such a delight to revisit your superb blog again! Sorry for my absence. Your images and videos are just wonderful as always. I wish I had your skills but I am happy to enjoy the products of your excellent observations via your blog. Thank you! 🙂

  3. Such a nice assortment of birds you still have in the winter! Love your wife’s picture of the Azure Kingfisher, a very beautiful bird and such an excellent shot. Your bird of the week has a spectacular eye 🙂 I’m happy I caught your post before my travels 🙂 Have a wonderful week!

    • Thanks Tiny, so glad I got it out early this week, so you could see it, my wife smiled when I told her liked her pic, she wants us to go back and get better ones. The New Holland is a spectacular looking little bird with its black on white contrasting plumage, its white eye and whiskers, they often appear to have an old man look. Praying you have a safe trip and a wonderful time away with your family and especially with your dear dad:-) Looking forward to hearing how it went, take care my friend:-)

    • Thanks Kathy, it is always a delight to actually get a flight shot in focus, but be encouraged that many of us, many more are discarded than are actually posted. I tend to even hang onto the blurry ones sometimes because they still can look stunning. It is about camera speed, and having the setting just right for the moment. I tend not to have my camera on the sport (action) setting for fast bursts all the time, but get my best flight shots when I do.

  4. Hi AB, always lovely to see the New Holland Honeyearers and their little black on white “kids toy” looking eye.
    You really did make the most of a lovley sunny adventure.

    We are a bit reigned in by the rain at the moment. But I do have to say, tis rather nice to hear it rattling on the roof.

    Hope you get some good looking migrant waders into those mud flats this season.

    • Thanks David, the rain has arrived here now for the rest of the week, and it is quite dark and cloudy, so it is quite removed from my sunny adventure. Yes we await the return of our waders. Have a great week:-)
