• 2012 *** Image of the Week 14/2/2012

    Wow, this years first week of images for nomination has been a real doozy!!! Heaps of images to choose from and a real fantastic crop in terms of quality.

    Well done to Chris Ross for his image of a Southern Emu-Wren. A superb shot and a worthy winner

    Heres what some of you had to say about it


    Top shelf of a difficult species.


    Beautiful capture - terrific alert pose, excellent detail. The two-tone background is really nice as well.


    Possibly the cleanest Male Emu Wren shot I have ever seen, amazing to capture in the open and the detail and perch are fantastic.

    Excellent light, pose and sharpness Chris
