Birdwings and bird wings


Lucky to come across pair of Cairns Birdwing (Ornithoptera priamus) on the job in patch of relict rainforest near Ingham at the weekend. Female above male. They fluttered off together a few minutes later.


More distant view of Topknot Pigeon (Lopholaimus antarcticus) flapping and feeding on figs at Jourama Falls the other day. 


And female Satin Flycatcher (Myiagra cyanoleuca) reacts to flash after landing close to camera along rainforest creek. 


But, as with most birds, doesn't turn a feather at second exposure.
