    Default WEEKLY THEME GALLERY 10/6/12 "BIRDS NOT LOOKING THEIR BEST"

    This weeks theme is thanks to Keith and Judy, next week we will have "FEEDING THE FAMILY" thanks to Margaret!
    An image of scruffy bird, possibly having a bad hair day would be great!

    Long-tailed Jaeger, photographed during a Wollongong Pelagic, 25/2/2012

    This was my first sighting of one of these he was a bit scruffy. I have to be honest the only reason I've kept the image is because I don't have any others. I normally don't keep images of birds 'not looking their best'.

    Nikon D7000, 200-400mm f4 VR @ 400mm, f/6.3, ISO 400, 1/2000s

    In October last year we had a weekend at Frog Gully Cottages near Sale Vic. It rained all weekend & the photographic light was atrocious. Lots of these birds at the feeder, all of them had been digging in the mud.

    Nikon D60, Sigma 150-500mm APO DG OS lens, 1/160sec,f5.6, iso800.

    White-faced heron caught while performing its morning ablutions. Jerrabomberra wetlands, 18/04/11.
    Canon 7D, 300 mm f2.8 + x2 ext, monopod leaning on fence.
    1/800th @ f5.6, ISO 800. Light conditions, fog lifting.
    (I have hundreds of photos to fit this theme, but mostly the result of poor photography, not the bird's fault at all.)

    I know these aren't Australian birds, but these Mute Swans seemed to fit the bill of not showing off their best side. Dayton, Ohio, USA in April.

    Pentax K5, Pentax DA*300 f4.

    A Willy Wagtail bathing last week in a little bird bath I put in in a landcare areaI'm working on near home. The WW was the first bird to make use of the water. A lot can happen in 1/250th of a second.
    Kind regards Trevor.
