Hi Robin,
Great pictures but what do you mean by White Faced Honeyeater? The scrubwrens always look a little angry. How do you get to photograph one against the blue sky?

Aaahhh - slip of the fingers. Sorry Philip ... I meant White-Eared Honeyeater.

As to the blue sky (a) I  had a "crack of dawn" teleconference with colleagues in the US so didn't get out until well after the fog lifted, (b) it was a lucky shot, and (c) I spent about 15 minutes editing out some unwanted elements.

At the risk of giving away trade secrets, here is a thumbnail of the original, unedited image ...


Regards ... Robin
