Absolutely cracking stuff @@theplainswanderer - those images are razor sharp with gorgeous color!


My favorite is the last shot of the Fuscous Honeyeater perched on the log. The subtle coloration of the bird blends well with the deadwood stump and the feather detail is crisp and in-focus throughout the length of the bird. So often, to get a bird's eyes in focus, one loses sharpness in the tail or outer wings but you nailed it!


Thanks very much for sharing these publication quality photos.

Really wonderful photographs of these honeyeaters. Thank you for sharing them with us.


My personal favorite is the first one of the Mangrove Honeyeater. That one has it all! Golden natural light, sharp focus on the eye, a nice blurred green background, a pop of color in the flower, and, to top it all off, you got him while singing, it appears. Very well done. Thanks again.
