    Default WEEKLY THEME GALLERY 25/6/11 "Another game of A to Z"

    Great to see so many cool Cuckoo images over the last week.

    This week we revisit one of the most popular themes from last year. All that is required is to add the next bird to the gallery in alphabetical order.
    WE WILL GO THROUGH A TO Z WITH COMMON NAMES FIRST AND THEN THROUGH SCIENTIFIC NAMES IF WE MAKE IT TO A SECOND ROUND.
    I'll be a bit lenient with names etc but not with alphabetical order...if you put a wrong letter bird in it will be deleted so make sure you are quick
    Ready....Ok, lets go.

    Red-necked Avocet (Recurvirostra novaehollandiae)
    Western Treatment Plant, Werribee, VIC
    22/6/2011

    Canon 5D 600mm f4 L (non IS) +1.4 TC iso 400 1/400th f11 CW metering +2/3 tripod mounted
