This one was my second lifer in an hour at Murrayville in Victoria's Mallee scrub.

Juvenile Purple-gaped Honeyeater (Lichenostomus cratitius).

I love these threads and aspire to much of what I see here.

I was hoping to get a shot of a spotted woodpecker that been seen visiting our garden, but settled for a somewhat more common blackbird.

As the ice slowly starts to melt around here the birds are returning. I made a rather futile attempt to sneak across what's left of the ice to get close enough to these Whooper swans so I had to crop a bit.

Both shots are wide open at 500 mm with my Tamron 200-500.

Lovely set Bernd - No 3 is lovely, but I'm super impressed with your swift in flight! That's a tough shot to make.

Hi Frank,
thanks! Actually #3 was a lot harder than the swift...
jumpy, little bird, always behind branches and stuff...
The swift had rather strong headwind and was flying pretty low- piece of cake your you!
regards,
Bernd
