    Default WEEKLY THEME GALLERY 22/8/10 "GREEN IS THE COLOUR"

    I think we did pretty darn well with our finch gallery last week. Some awesome images for all the finch lovers to take in.
    Seeing how it looks like the GREENS may have the balance of power in the Australian Parliament after yesterdays election I thought we might give the colour green the balance of power on BirdingOz for the week as well. Any shot with a green bird or even green surroundings will be up for inclusion Look forward to seeing what you all come up with

    Almost sure this guy was had damage to his eye which may account for the lack of catchlight.

    Not a bird we see posted often, but still great in its own ways

    One of my first photos with my then new 50D and 400mm f/5.6L combo, hence the crappy exposure on the crown

    Chestnut-breasted Mannikin (Lonchura castaneothorax)

    Canon 50D, 400mm f/5.6L, ISO 400, f/5.6, 1/500s, +1 EV (hence the overexposure).
