If there is something other than the gorgeous colours that draws me deep into the Australian Outback, it is our unique and diverse birdlife.
I never tire of sitting in the bush observing the many varieties of birds of all shapes and sizes and colour.
Recently, I was contacted by a researcher from Germany who is doing a thesis on a bird that I grew up with in Northern Australia and one that will be familiar too many, the Zebra Finch, and they were keen to use this photograph in their paper.
It is a favourite photograph of mine that showcases this wonderful bird in all its splendour…!

ps: I had about one-second to get this shot away before they flittered away – the wonders of continuous shooting…!
