CommentThis bird was one of four or five that was actively feeding on a cloud of insects which seemed to be associated with eucalypt plantings. It is about to land. This capture took around two hours. I was trying to capture birds in flight and managed this one by focusing on the outer foliage of the eucalypt and waiting for the bird to fly into the view finder. The big problem with this approach is that I ended up with a messy background. I used f/10 to garner some depth of field. Based on range and underparts, probably subspecies alisteri
