All beautiful, with the duck photo being a little more spectacular for the marvellous range of colours and inclusion of the mirrored reflections.


Thanks for sharing, Paul. :D

Flamingoes look even more beautiful with your angles and shooting, Paul. : ))

Great contrasty colours richened more with the brilliantly sharp and clear reflections...

No stunning close-ups from me I'm afraid, but I rather liked this group of Oyster Catchers that flew over while I was chasing waves (photographically 8) ).

Oyster Catchers by Birm, on Flickr

According to Google the group noun is a 'Parcel' of Oyster Catchers. I thought a 'Peep' sounded better :D . I have had some nice sightings of Golgen Eagles over the last two weeks, but too far away for the beercan.

Now I remember, I saw the picture of the Oystercatchers and I wanted to do some research but got sidetracked, I thought it was unusual for Oystercatchers to be in large groups 'parcel' I always got the impression here that they were only loosely associated with one another and sortof hung about mostly in pairs, so I was quite impressed with that shot showing them flying in formation. Good one Birma.

Those Rainbow Lorikeets are pretty Lusine Flake but the can be quite noisy in a large group. I know first hand, there is a tree they like when it's in flower not far from my bedroom window.
