CommentAt Government Dam in Coolamon there are extensive paddocks surrounding the dam where sheep are agisted. In the middle towards the South there is a piece of rusty wire sitting up in the air providing a great location for birds to survey the area for insects. So I just set myself up there and waited! I enjoyed the way this little guy faced into the wind and used his wings to balance. The background of the grassy paddock was very pleasing handled beautifully by the 300mm lens.
