Default Silver Wings


I spotted this bird first a few weeks ago and have been hoping to catch up with it since.
The white-faced heron (Egretta novaehollandiae) is also known as the white-fronted heron. It is common
throughout most of Australasia. It is a wader and can be found almost anywhere near shallow water. If disturbed
it departs the scene promptly on long, slow-beating wings, but not before I was able to catch it ‘napping’ down by the creek.


This new lens has makes me feel like Mickey, the sorcerer’s apprentice, with a magic picture-taking
wand in which I’m not yet fully trained, and cannot stop shooting pictures because I don’t know how !

Micro Four Thirds 40-150mm F2.8 Pro * w/tc, 210mm (420mm equiv.) from about 30 metres

Most bird species have variants across the globe ... even us humans, and relatively speaking, we're no less agressive perhaps even more so!

Great shots Mark. Came across these in west and east Australia, New Zealand and Fiji so a fairly widespread bird
