Australasian Darter

I don't get around to posting many photos, but here's one. This is one of my favourite Darter pics from the start of the year, just after a few days with my new camera, a Nikon P610. It won the Youth Fauna catergory of the Wetland in Focus photography prize.

Taken at Jerrabomberra Wetlands in Canberra. I don't do anything in photoshop or lightroom, etc.

Congratulations HelloBirdy! Not an easy bird to get close to.

Jerrabomberra Wetlands in Canberra sounds familiar. You didn't bump into Shorty whilst you were there by any chance.

Well done Birdy. Looks like she's eying you off and ready to take flight. Like Reflex said. Not an easy bird to get close to.

What a great shot

The underneath webbing of the beak is especially interesting for me

Dont take life too seriously, it never ends well

Thanks all for the kind comments!

Reflex- I have seen Shorty around, but no idea if I saw him that day

Aiming for DSLR-quality shots with a bridge camera
