CommentI am entering this shot as it shows the way the Pardalote lands on the hollow and then turns to check for any threats. In capturing this moment we can clearly see all the feather markings on his back as it is very well lit but also I have his eye sharp and a catch light. It is a well balanced composition cropped to a square which suited the framing of the tree hollow. You can just make out the other bird of the pair in the hollow bottom left. I have enhanced the tree hollow creatively with a Topaz Impressions filter.
