White-plumes on the Loddon

Lean pickings this weekend I’m afraid. A brief excursion to the Loddon on Saturday coincided with some pale winter sunshine which bathed these White-plumed Honeyeaters for a few moments. Roll on Spring!

  2. I do prefer the new cover photo, even though it’s still farm land.Much more remnant vegetation on show.

  3. Have to say that post with white plumed, just was so lovely, the colours and the bird dance by one of the trio made my day!

  4. Also your colour photography always seems so vibrant, breathtaking beautiful Geoff!

  5. Gorgeous photos to brighten a dreary day. Thanks

  6. I feel that these 3 photographs would ideal framed in a row. What beautiful and delicate birds.
