Beautiful little birds, well done Richard. it is great to see them in the wild I bet! Shame you just cropped off the tail , remember to reduce to 500 on the longest edge to get the full shot in )

Richard, these photos are superb. never seen such good shots of a zebra before. amazing colours, especially the beak.
where did you find him?

Cheers, Owen.

Hi Owen1,

I am so lucky with the Zebs at the moment. They come to a little patch of woodland at work, Coolibah Swamp to be exact, and today there must have been around 100 of them. Standing in the shadows of one of the large gums, these two in particular were very friendly. I have a shot of about 30 of them in a small area in a tree as well. I must say I am a bit jealous of your avatar. I have shots of the Diamond Firetail but not as good as yours. Thanks for your comments.

thanks Richard. I spotted him in a grey box forest in eynesbury west of melbourne. i was pretty lucky as they are very hard to find around the melbourne area and he just sat in the gum tree on an exposed branch as if he was posing for a photo.

Cheers, Owen.
