    Default Image of the Week 7/11/2011

    Some great contributions to the forum this week

    Well done to Heyn for his image of a Striated Grasswren, the difficulty of capturing the species made this one a highlight for the week.

    Love the sharpness and colors of the bird, the background has just enough effect to push the bird in your face as well.


    Very appealing shot with great detail and so nice to see a Grasswren in the clear!


    Superb image !! Heyn !
