...what's that up there?


In the middle of the white circle is a bird.  Someone in the small birding group spotted it; how they did I'll never know.....



it was a Wonga Pigeon, and it really wasn't until I opened this photo up back at home  that I got to see it much clearer. Thank heavens it's a big size bird to fill up the frame like this.

further along some evidence of storm damage with fallen timbers

location: Cooranbong, N.S.W.

I've never had a good look at this Pigeon in real life - usually it remains a distant 'tree speck' to me! It's a beautiful bird though, thanks for sharing!

Wow - Your telephoto reach amazes me. Is that shot using only your camera zoom, or did you bring it in closer in a photo program? I'm impressed!

Pretty good clarity being zoomed in and maybe cropped some plus hand holding the camera. Nicely done.

Sinbad and I (John), also Montanagirl (Mona), yes zoomed to max (1200mm) and hand-holding and cropped/re-sized. Thanks to all who have left a comment; I really enjoy reading them and knowing that you come visit and see what I have seen "out there".

Very nice shot of a great-looking pigeon, Carole!

Must have been a mighty wind to have taken down such large trees.
