Deserving cases find places

Male Rufous Whistler (Pachycephala rufiventris) takes in the morning sun.

Themes running in recent posts left some deserving pictures with no place to go. So, here's a place for them.

Black-necked Stork (Ephippiorhyncus asiaticus) kicks up the mud as she lifts off.

Female Shining Flycatcher (Myiagra alecto) perches in the rainforest.

Dragonfly (Diplacodes haematodes) takes a rest.

Stunning female Shining Flycatcher.
Other photos are good, but that one is special.

I'm glad you made a place for such great photos!

Some wonderful pics there! Glad we didn't miss out on them.

Denis, Mick, Mosura:

Thanks all. Would probably have used Shining earlier, but focus was a bit too soft. Wee oversharpen gave it some glow.

All great pictures Tony, you do a great job getting up so close and personal.
