Hail to two standout stayers of the year

Time to farewell 2011 and welcome 2012 - by hailing two of the Tyto stayers, species not even Cyclone Yasi could blow away: Crimson Finch (Neochmia phaeton) and White-browed Robin (Poecilodryas superciliosa).







Happy New Year!

They are beautiful birds and unfortunately not ones that I ever see down this way. Happy New Year to you also, Tony.

Now Tony, that last shot is just showing off!
How much did you pay your White-browed Robin models to pose like that?
Keep up the fine work.
Happy New Year to you.
Denis

That certainly does look like showing off! What a fantastic pic of the robins. (They're all great, but that one is particularly fine!)

Happy 2012, Tony. Hope it's an excellent year!

Hi Denis, Bronwyn: First time I've ever got robins in near perfect pair pose. Might go back to original and see if better PP tidies it up even more.

A fine way to finish 2011 Tony - that last shot of the robins is wonderful. Best wishes for the new year which is now already upon us - we look forward to more of your excellent photos.

Thanks Barbara: let's hope the sometimes ungrateful little buggers learn in 2012 to pose on order ;-)
