Went for a walk in the rain-forests above the Gold Coast today and found this little guy ... he's about 2 inches long, maybe a frag more.

He's adorable. Was it the bird seed hidden in your pockets that got him to sit still?

No bird seed ... just a wild birdy in the middle of a rain-forest who liked having his photo taken ... for a minute.

That is a great set. Funny how tiny birds seem to have so much personality.

Thanks Bambi and Matt.

I use flash in the rainforest for the birds Matt so that puts the sparkle in.

Very nicely captured MA, and such a beautiful specimen. Like the eye sharpness in #1.
From what I read they are very tiny, not much larger than a hummer. Excellent job on such a small species.

Thanks HBG. They certainly are very small.
