Two more excellent images,Scotty. Are you still on holiday or back home now ? I almost missed this one what with all the old posts being brought back up.

Thanks Pakku. Unfortunately he did a tail flick just as I took the shot. I only lost about 1/2" of it & didn't notice at the time. I'm sure i'll get more opportunities....Scotty.

Thank you Rick. I'll be here in The Grampians for another 3 weeks yet. I doubt that will even be enough time to capture all that's on offer here. But i'll do my best....Scotty.

One of my favourite birds Scotty. Nicely exposed with lots of details. You might be able to bump up the whites/exposure a touch without blowing out too much of the whites and bring back a little more detail in the shadows.
