    Default Newbie - Hi from Frenchy from Katoomba, NSW.

    Hi all.

    My name is John French (real name Frenchy) & I live in Katoomba - in the Blue Mts, west of Sydney.

    I love birdwatching & bird photography - & enjoy meeting like minded others. I also like volunteering with various bird/nature conservation groups.

    I've seen some of the fantastic bird pics on this forum & am amazed at the skill & talent of the photographers. I'm hoping to learn/get some tips to help improve my bird photography.

    I've attached (I think ???) a recent pic (from a Central QLD trip) of a pair of Grey-headed Honeyeaters, that popped up onto a blooming Bloodwood.

    I currently use a Canon 7D m2 with a EF 100-400 USM 1 lens.

    Cheers - Frenchy
