• 2012 *** Image of the Week 29/07/2012-Winner** Rob Drummond**

    Rob Drummond is the landslide winner this week receiving 10 votes for his superb image of a Leaden Flycatcher (Myiagra rubecula).


    Flawless image.
    The bg is great, good colour, the faded out Casuarina leaves and the sharp, clear and detailed shot. Excellent.
    Instantly a winner for me....love the green sheen, perfect light...just perfect
    stunning image
    The sheen and interest of the bird is striking and there is sufficient habitat so it doesn't look like your typical bird in a cage shot
    Great shot of a difficult species. Beautiful background.
    Just a sensational shot all round
    Overall look and quality of the image. A beautifully shown bird.
    The colour, pose and composition are perfect.
    Beautiful all-round. Lovely lighting.

    Red-capped Plover ~ Duade Paton (2 votes)
    White-faced Heron ~ Dave Stowe
    Baby Australian Owlet-nightjar ~ Richard Jackson
