Carpenter Bee (Xylocopa aruana?) shows off huge eye as it settles, mostly still, on prolific low-growing local weed, name unknown to me.
Wandering Whistling Ducks (Dendrocygna arcuata) also settle mostly still on still morning last month. Not many ducks to be seen today with the lagoon up 30cm-plus in five days.
Just before the rain, caught this Azure Kingfisher (Ceyx azureus) swinging above drying pool along a rainforest creek. Probably be September before any thought of getting dry-footed into same spot.
No problems getting to see White-browed Robin (Poecilodryas superciliosa). Not so easy catching them with caterpillars in sharp focus. Resolution for 2010 is sharper (lens) resolution!
So, final soft shot, of Rainbow Bee-eaters (Merops ornatus). Immature on left not sharing prey with companion, though it looks otherwise.
