    Default WEEKLY THEME GALLERY 14/2/10- "BIRDS IN LOVE"

    IMAGES ONLY

    Another great gallery last week guys and girls Those poor bugs were not too happy to be involved me thinks
    This weeks theme is "BIRDS IN LOVE" to coincide with Valentines Day so any image that fits in with the theme is up for inclusion.
    I'm on a bit of a short holiday at the moment and I'm away from my home PC so please feel free to start the gallery without me. Look forward to seeing what we all come up with.

    Cheers, Paul

    I dont have much at all in the way of birds in love, rather this one is more "birds out of love".

    The poor WFH on the left appears rather dejected after his advances failed to spark any interest. Perhaps sitting around on top of a pump shed wasnt her idea of a nice date :roll:

    Surprised that there hasn't been any images of birds "doing the deed" so to speak. Here are a pair of dynamic Rainbow Lorikeets. Taken a couple of years back at the south coast NSW.

    Found another one I've always liked, 2 juvenile Eastern spinebills, not perfect compositionally with oof greenery here and there, but a nice serene feel to the image in my opinion.

    Here is a shot i got very early in the morning at Currawinya NP.

    i was fiddling with my call playback device sitting quietly in some low scrub when I happened to play mulga parrot at just the right moment (I was reminding myself of the call) when a pair flew overhead, turned and landed fairly close to me. The male then wandered over to the female and started to preen her head. Very sweet display of pair bonding.

    Not perfect by any means, but I quite like it.
