Re: ***Weekly Wildlife Thread: July 8th - 14th***

Spent a few days away down the coast this week with the hope of some Sea-eagles or Osprey's...alas no luck so resorted to a walk around my usual spot this morning.
Yes, there will be even more Azure Kingfisher shots. 

Yellow-billed Spoonbill

Satin Bowerbird

Rainbow Lorikeet

Back view

And then there be Azure's, sat down and waited in view of the perch they have been using for the last month or so. Got a few quick glimpses at first before a 10 minute window of 2 birds calling, doing wing displays and fishing right infront of me.

Wing display, usually a territorial signal. Second bird was on a perch right nearby
Severely blew the exposure and had to recover a real dark shot.

2 on a stick.
Just no way to get enough DOF for both.
