  • David de Groot said:
    Thanks, I was leaning towards a Brown Honeyeater, but the lack of yellow behind the eye threw me.
    I am indeed, and yes, 'twas a very nice holiday indeed (and a lot warmer than Brisbane, overall).

    Very nice shot.
  • David de Groot said:
    Thanks Shaun, definitely one of the better birding shots I took while on holidays :)

  • Jack High said:
    Lovely shot of the bird, and the colour in that flower is stunning as well.
    Seen in my contacts' photos. (?)
  • David de Groot said:
    Thanks :)
    Thanks Jack. If you're ever up that way, drop into the Pinnacle Pub, the pies alone are worth it, and this tree is out the front right next to the tables, so you can eat and bird-watch at the same time.

    very nice capture :) and you managed to hold the camera steady after a few drinks - even better :D I really like the pretty pink flower as well :)

    Ah I was driving so it was water for me. Day trip to Eungella from Mum & Dad's is a 380km round trip, not the sort of trip you want to dull your senses on as you return after dark...
    'twas glad to get him, as the first time he fluttered onto the tree near us, my camera was securely packed in the bag without the TC on it. Much futzing around and waiting (while eating) and he eventually came back.

    Love this one. Do you know what kind of tree that is?
  • David de Groot said:
    [] Good question - someone once told me, but plant ID isn't my speciality. I do know it's not native to Australia though.
  • gloriously shambolic said:
    I hope you don't mind, but I took the liberty of drawing this one.

    [] Fantastic work :)
