Life in and around tropical Queensland wetlands

Welcome to the world of almosts
Close. Almost. Not quite right. One of those mornings in the Common today. Started with Brown Goshawk. Flew from ground and stayed in shadow and behind twig. Big adjustment made to lighten image.
Rainbow Bee-eater stuck tight to branch and flew off before I could adjust camera angle inside Troopy to get full tail in shot.
Suicidal Black-fronted Dotterel walked along road even as traffic passed within two metres. But just would not look my way. And flew off teasingly whenever I tried to walk up on it.
Nothing new in grasses and branches getting in the way of course. Thus, Brolga the other day.
And Crimson Finch.
And Pheasant Coucal.
And Blue-winged Kookaburra.
Too difficult to fix many untidy images, but clone tool and tight cropping can work wonders. Others must be cast aside and prayers offered for better luck next time.
