Blue-faced Honeyeater

Blue-faced Honeyeater (Image ID 35306)
CommentThe topic raises questions about the relationship between birds and humanity.
There is nothing 'natural' about this image.
The bokeh is supplied by Bougainvillea. The fence is entirely constructed. The bird was only present in this location because there is a leaking tap nearby and it was hot and dry during a record drought afflicting Lightning Ridge.
The composition has been arranged to allow the fence to dominate the foreground and the bougainvillea to dominate the background. The aim was to project the displacement of the bird.
While there was enough information in the capture to allow for a much tighter crop, the bird has been left small in the image to add to the image of the bird existing at all only at the gift of humanity.
The bird has a hunched position, appears to be clutching hard at the fence, and is fully engaging the viewer.
