I love to walk or bike around our local area, with my camera of course....
Recently I have found myself photographing our beautiful and unique birds.. The Onkaparinga River is only a few short miles away and has a number of birds residing on its shores.
Always captivating, but requiring patience, and a stealthy, camouflaged approach.
Hmmm I kept wondering why all the birds flew off when I walked out so brazenly in my white scarf and T shirt singing a mindless and loud melody.
I needed to get close and not come home with a thousand blurry shots taken from way in the distance...........
If I was to become a sneaky bird watcher things had to change!
I now resemble psycho Sam from the movie "Hunt for the Wilderpeople." I tie a myriad of tree branches around my head and body...and quite the reverse is happening...The birds stay foraging and preening, but I've noticed humans run away from me as I walk along the banks of the estuary.
The heron bride.
Bitten off more than she can chew.
Each evening we have crows flying over the hill towards our home. I managed to capture them with the rising moon this last week.
