CommentWith these beautiful birds so close to home I thought I would take another look at them yesterday. This beautiful bird perched very close to me and my ancient 600mm lens latched onto the fine detail of his plumage and the striking crimson colour that gives him his name. I really like the fine crimson feathers underneath his eye. These tiny birds are certainly exciting to see here in Chiltern - even though the reasons for them being here are probably reflecting dire circumstances further north.
EquipmentCanon 7D Mark II with Canon EF 600mm f4/L USM non IS lens at 600mm, 1/160 sec, f8, ISO 250 on tripod.
LocationChiltern - Mt Pilot National Park, Victoria
