‘Muskies’ up close

These darned ‘muskies’ just had to feature again. Completely oblivious to the camera they were captured almost within touching distance. The incredible value of veteran trees in providing a rich and sustained nectar flow over the winter months has never been more evident to me.

    Just fabulous! The details of the bird’s feathers and the colours are wonderful.

  3. Did you have a tripod set up or hand held? Your photos are so sharp – fantastic work! 😊

    • Hi Dayna – I sometimes use a tripod, more often a monopod but mostly hand-held. Many photos – a few are sharp! Using fill flash is helpful if you can get close up as this allows some underexposure and a faster shutter speed.
      Cheers, geoff
