Merri Creek, Melbourne
Well I went photographing birds this morning. The first time in more than a year. I finally got myself a lens and it is working great so far. I went down to the local park and down to the creek. There were only common birds but I wented to test out the lens to make sure it was sharp and did not have a focus problem.
A common Indian Mynah was feeding on the grass in the park with a couple of Magpie-larks. There are lots of them in the parks around Melbourne.
A magpie swooped down on them and they scarpered off. Magpies are very territorial and aggressive. This one hung out in the tree to make sure they did not come back.
This Red Wattlebird made a violent racket and then proceeded to hang upside down. It is a bit dark but its a really interesting pose.
On the way back in the street a gum was in blossom and the bees were feeding like crazy on the nectar. Well that is about it. The lens is working good. I am back into it.
