Morning Walk

  I really had nothing to post about this week until I went for an early morning walk this morning. It was beautiful and well worth the effort. Once again - I walked along the Mullens foreshore.

Although the scenery was beautiful the only birds I had seen were one flying past which I could not identify

and a whole tree full of Little Egrets in the distance.

Of course, there was always my Stumpy-tailed Blue Healer - Misty - to try and coax into a photo!

Then just as I was close to the car park this beautiful little bird flew down not far ahead of me. My hand was shaking - I forgot to change the camera settings to compensate for the low light  - and the resulting photos are not as sharp as I could wish! But - an Eastern Yellow Robin is always beautiful!

    Used to enjoy them in the Victorian high country.

  8. That early morning light is just beautiful and always the best for photography. Well worth leaving your bed early, especially with the Eastern Robin bonus.

  12. Glorious water and sky shots Mick! What a sweet little robin, such lovely colours. I know what you mean about shaking with excitement, I was all shakes last week when I spotted and photographed my first orioles. Misty is a sweetie!

  15. The yellow robin is darling (and a new -- even virtually-- bird for me). Your water pictures are so restful and lovely -- If I were you I would never think I didn't have anything to post. Misty looks a little peeved that you made her stop walking and turn around for a picture op!

  18. Isn't that the way it always happens. The best shot opportunities come along when you're not ready. The Yellow Robin is a beautiful little bird.
    Beautiful scenic shots here and I love seeing your dog, Misty.

  20. You've got the best patch to bird. Your pooch is great.....looks like you're protected:) Congrats on the robin. The camera stuff happens to me as well. Sometimes I mess around with the settings too much that I lose observation time on the bird. What's a birder to do?:)
