I am in awe of bird photographers. I study their photos, imagine the effort needed to produce such glorious results, imagine the cost and weight of the equipment they use, admire their knowledge of bird behaviour.
So I don't do bird photography. Give me an insect or a plant any day. But this beautiful White-browed Scrubwren sat on a post close to me and I couldn't resist. I'm cheating really because they are birds that don't mind human company.
