Ain't it always the way?

On Saturday, I mentioned how eastern whipbirds are shy and reclusive. On Sunday, one of them approached so close that I had difficulty focusing the camera on it.

Not that I'm complaining. But it's just so typical.

Like crested terns, they also look scruffier in real life than they do in the bird books.

The number of pics I've missed because I haven't had the camera! All of them prize-winning, I'm sure.

I now always have the camera to hand when I'm at home. Mind you, I almost never have the right lens fitted. But one thing at a time.
