CommentI think there must be several individuals inhabiting the bush bordering my property, because I frequently see them moving around and foraging in the open. However, they are wary, usually remain in the shade, and move fairly fast. This has made my previous attempts at photographing them with a slow shutter speed relatively unsuccessful. This one must have been hampered by the twigs it is carrying, as it stood still for long enough for me to obtain a good image.
