CommentWhat makes Willy Wagtails so bold? This is one of a number of frames I took of these birds diving on Purple Swamphens during a time the willy's had young in the nest. Swamphens never seemed bothered by them much but on occasion they would retaliate. This was taken in shade with auto ISO, not sure how well I've managed the noise.
