With so many people trying their hands at various approaches to bird
photography, here's something that might catch on in the near future:
photographing a bird so as to show relevant habitat in the background.
The particular method used here employs a very wide angle lens that
maintains focus from a few centimetres (distance to bird) out to the background - by contrast with a macro/micro lens that has a very
shallow field of focus.  The bird shown has not been superimposed but
was held in one hand with the camera held in the other.  Oh, the other
little thing is that you need to catch your Painted Honeyeater first.
