Hello from Queensland!

Hello to all you wonderful birders!

Some may still remember me from a good few years ago, but for those who don't - my name is Elsie. I have been birdwatching since I was very young and am passionate about bird photography and conservation. While I was an avid photographer last time I was here, I am now quite limited as to time (and not having a huge long lens!) and mostly love watching the birds wherever I happen to be. I have recently married and moved to a new town in QLD and am enjoying learning all the new birds from here, and it reminded me how much I enjoyed being a part of this forum. 

I am excited to be back and look forward to getting to see and partake in all the beautiful photos and stories once again!

Sounds like me, my camera isn’t good enough to take long distance photos, so i have to get realy close to bird. So I prefer to just watch them.

i tend to stick to taking photos of things that don’t move. Or birds that are still.

And watching them without the camera is sometimes the best therapy a body needs I reckon! 
Parks are often good for taking photos close up, you'll get mostly the more "common" birds Ibis and Magpies and such - but still good opportunities! That's what i've been doing anyway :)

Welcome back Elsie. I do have been busy with other things and have only just come back to see how the site is going.
