White-browed Scrubwren

I got very close to one this afternoon, there was no reason not to get a good photo. But no idea why, I find them a challenge. Here is one of the photos I took, I would likt to see yours, post them on my thread here. I was very disappointed with my results. Have to be more relaxed next time, I think when you get excited you get tense, that doesn't make for a good photos?

can I post 2 pics? (he asks and then doesn't wait for confirmation)

#1 - Brunswick Heads Nature Reserve, NSW - 25 Nov '11

#2 - Girraween NP, Qld - 20 Feb '12

these very active little birds also contribute to the difficulty of getting pics

I reckon it's pretty good, M-L. They do tend to jump about a bit andthey are so tiny  which doesn't make the job easy. Judging from other shots that you've posted, it won't be too long before you get one that you're happy with.

The Western Treatment Plant, near the birdhide, is always a good spot for this species. They often perch on the plants on either side of the road leading down to the hide.Here's one that was taken at that location.

They do have this certain "stare" when you look at them from the front. Love your photos. We will be going to the treatment Plant on the weekend, hope it's not too wet. Will look out for them. Keep your photos coming.

Here is one more from my garden:

well you cant complain about that last shot M-L.  I think george is right that they jump around a lot and I personally get a bit över excited when faced with a challenge like that. it doesnt help that they like to stick in the undergrowth without good light most of the time.
