CommentThis is an image of a juvenile Slender-billed Thornbill resting under woody samphire (Tecticornia Spp). It was part of full family feeding party but took safe refuge for a rest.I Iiked the shot as it shows the bird in its habitat but also a behavioral aspect and the fact that I was able to get a shot of it through a window in this natually dense vegetation. Keen to hear how others see it.
I have better and more will follow.
