'Reddy' theme for big picture change


Get 'reddy' for bigger pictures. Should be able now to click on any to enlarge because I've finally twigged to benefits of Blogger's new editor. Opening with Comb-crested Jacana (Irediparra gallinacea). And throwing in a choc box shot from distance at Macknade Wetland early today (below).






And here's a male Red-backed Fairy-wren (Malurus melanocephalus) carrying a red 'love token' near the Tyto hide. Well, most of the bird anyway! All another male (below).






Finally, pair of Metallic Starlings (Aplornis metallica) near Ingham today. Trick of reflected light shows strange colour on head of right-hand bird.

Your photos definitely look even better when they are bigger. Re the second photo - a 'choc box shot' it may be but it is also beautiful.

Nowt wrong with chocolate box shots! That's a fabulous collection of red.

G'day Tony,
Lovely. I've always wondered why I could never open your pictures in another tab apart from the first one!?
Boy, glad you've fixed it. That RBWren is a stunner in my book. Love the little bush birds.

Thanks all. Shouldn't knock my own shots, I know. But sometimes there's a bit too much temptation in nature. Rather like the chocolates themselves!

Forget about the box. Where are the chocolates?

Great pics. Nice to be able to see the larger versions.

Real thing too fattening. Feast for eyes only!

Those Red-backed Fairy-Wrens are stunning! I really like that first photo of one of them.
