Incredible photos, everyone! Here are my contributions... I wasn't sure if it was okay to contribute multiple images, but as it is approaching the end of the month, I figured what the heck. All the photos were taken in the Kimberley of western Australia this summer at Mornington Wildlife Sanctuary... Quite an amazing time there.






Pair of long-tailed finches preening each other near sunrise. These finches were busily feeding nestlings... I felt quite fortunate to get a few images of respite and intimacy between the birds.






Jabiru stork fishing in Bluebush Wetland. I liked the effect of the reflections and the sandstone glow showing in the shallow wetland water here as the male stork fed... Quite a striking bird.






Female red-backed fairy-wren. Although the males of this species are more bold in color, I really liked the effect of the fairy-wren perched in the midst of branches and grass, echoes of her tail and legs in the angles of the vegetation.

This thread is always a true pleasure to view and no matter how busy I get throughout the year, and how little posting I do on the forum (which might be zero this year!) I always make time for thsi thread. I didnt get out shooting nearly as much as I had hoped or wanted to, but did manage to get a few keepers.

I guess this is the one I am posting as my best of the year. ISO 1600 which I don't love, but I like the action.

Actually not my best, but I love this shot for how it was taken. I have several feeders in my front yard and this guy stopped by one morning in hopes of a meal, but not from the feeder, from the little birds that were feeding there. This was taken while in my PJ's in my living room, out through a closed window.

ETA yes that is my green windstar as the background parked in the driveway.
