CommentIn trawling through the BLP images I have noticed that there are proportionately fewer images of birds directly facing the viewer. The plus is that the bird directly engages the viewer. A challenge is that this view normally requires greater depth of field than, for example, a bird presented side on.
(This image was captured consistent with current ACT Coronavirus regulations.)
