Very cool. Looks like he just hung out there on the branch while you walked around and shot him like a runway model. :laughing: I'd like to see one around here somewhere. They're on the city flag but I've never actually seen one in the city though I'm told they are around if you look in the right places.

All awesome close up captures Kenny. You must have tremendous patience as I know they are a very nervous bird, and hard to get close to.
I see you have ok to edit on, and I hope you don't mind. They all seemed a little flat/dull so all I did was add a little contrast and a slight bit brighter. Hope you like.

These are great. It is almost as if he is showing off for you.

Gorgeous comps here km! They did look flat though and HBG has shown you the potential to make these sing louder.
Very well framed.

Fantastic shots, just needed that little "pop". He seems a bit reluctant to eat the fish. Maybe the fish is "Mate Bait"?
