This male Common Bronzewing (Phaps chalcoptera) was a visitor to my camp site at Halls Gap. EXIF: Canon EOS 30D : 1/125 sec : f 5.6 : 400 mm : ISO 200
I thought he was a drab looking bird - till I scrolled down a bit and saw the splash of colour.

Beautifully captured. They are a wonderful dove/pidgeon!

Magical. A sense of phoenix. One came to visit me this morning too. He flew in and stopped right in front of me under the big willow tree.
