Nutmeg Mannikin

Nutmeg Mannikin (Image ID 35872)
CommentThe Nutmeg Mannikin is an introduced bird into Australia so qualifies for this competition. A member of the finch family, it feeds on seeds and loves town parks and gardens for foraging. I got low to capture this image so as to blur out the grass in the foreground. I also used an f stop of 4 to blur his mate and the grass in the background so that the front bird is the main focus of the image.
