Some great fishing displays guys - top stuff. Took me a moment to spot the croc too mpb which is why they're so good at being predators I guess.
Here's another shot from last Saturday this time a Western Yellow Robin who up until now has been a bit of a nemesis for me.

Amazing fishingshots indeed! The croc is a nice bonus, I guess it came to see what all the fuzz was about.
Lots of detail in the robin, very nice.

A couple of photos of a tawny frogmouth, one of a pair that have taken up residence in a mature tree in the grounds of my grand-daughters' school. The Principal gave me access to an upstairs window roughly at eye level where I got these photos. Couldn't get any cleaner shots, nor more face-on. Of course these are nocturnal and sleep all day pretending to be a bit of dead tree.
Taken with a77ii and SAL70400Gii. EXIF embedded.

Went to the park looking for this fellow whom I shot in Feb and did not process the shot since it was a ISO 5000.

I found this one instead just this week...this is in fact the first time the blue eared kingfisher appeared in this nature park. There was never a record of it at all. Since it was so far away and it was taken with the mirror lens, I decided to make it a landscape look.
