Shake a tail feather baby...... please...

This fellow spent a great deal of time this morning, high up in a huge old tree with a lot of dead branches, just chewing on the wood, from every conceivable angle. At least it gave me a good view of the feathers underneath.

Meanwhile, his mates were eating gumnuts in a well stocked tree nearby, and I was slowly melting below, and sagging under the weight of a hand held camera.   After what seemed like hours it eventually deigned to give me a quick chance at a flight shot. I'm still not getting crisp shots of flight - especially when they're that high up - but at least the morning light on the tail feathers was nice.

Leaning back against the wind with all 7.1 grams or 0.25 oz causes a few ruffled feathers.
