A Blue Bonnet (Northiella haematogaster) feeding on grass seeds near Scenic Hill in Griffith. EXIF: Canon EOS 30D : 1/400 sec : f 7.1 : 400 mm : ISO 100
He looks like he is doing a very good job hiding from you.

I've been away and I'm just catching up with things now. I see I've missed some beautiful shots while I was away. I love the shots of the 2 birds drinking at the water's edge and the one standing in the water. The reflections for both of those are wonderful.. The rainbow is awesome too. It does look like this guy was trying to be elusive.

That is one heck of a snap! The colouration on the bird blends in superbly with the background. Nicely captured.

Unusual and striking...love the colour blend and the soft background.

This one is going straight to the pool room. Nice work!

What a beautiful animal, really like how he not only blends in with the background, but contrasts with it as well. I am sure there's some fancy technical name for that, but I can't think of one right now...

I just can't get over all the beautiful birs y'all have there.

Terrific colour and DOF. Composition is great as well.

Just browsing some more. This shot appears to me to be less documentary and more artistic. It really is a visually inspiring image. It gets you right down to cumfy mother earth ground level amongst the grasses. The light is very nice here and the blues and oranges in the bird's feathers look lovely amongst all those yellow hues.
