a touch of yellow in the bushland

down next this little pocket by the lake; over to the right some, outside of the photo

and guess what I spotted; totally unexpected.  Was just hoping this little Eastern Yellow Robin would sit tight while I walked around some, to line up with a lake backdrop.  

so endearing ...


just long enough for a quick photo shoot and then he was off; made my day. sweet little thing.

It's been awhile since I've commented (busy, busy summer) but had to stop by and say this little bird is just so adorable. I'm so glad you got some shots of it.

Well he surely did sit still for you- great shot with the blue water behind and the gray branches.

Aren't they sweet little birds!! Great find, Carole. I am assuming this is on Lake Macquarie? I do hope we can meet up with you when we are down your way on Sept 8.
