Too hot to work at home.

I was going to spend to-day working at home, in the yard but I convinced myself that it was going to be way too hot to do that.

I awoke at 05:00 and after a quick shower, jumped into the car and headed off to Bribie Island. About 67 kilometres North from Brisbane.

Kakadu Beach is a great spot for photography, (You just need to avoid all the people who want to talk to you about your camera or lens. Believe me there is nothing in it for you (easily recognised. They usually have small manicured dogs with them and carry folded plastic bags but wouldn't know the difference between a Brown Honeyeater or a White-Cheeked Honeyeater). Avoid them at all costs.

Great set Reflex. That Beach Stone-curlew is looking like it might doze off at any moment and fall over!

Aiming for DSLR-quality shots with a bridge camera

Great shots, Reflex. A good day birding beats a bad day mowing :)

I reckon a bad day birding beats a good day mowing, either way nice photos. Oh you can also replace the birding with fishing!

I think the Beach Stone Curlew had some fishing line around his neck. The neck feathers didn't sit properly although he was quite alert.
