Spotted Pardalote

I took the Nikon D3000 with me on the walk this morning, hopeful for a bit of sunlight and the spotted pardalote. I see it most mornings, now, as it feeds its partner or young. Their nesting tunnel begins between the crevices of the footbridge foundations.

The little fellow is small and keeps moving, but I managed a couple of poses showing off his vivid plumage. Pity I did not think to brace the camera on the railing.

I have fixed my Nikon. I can’t recall exactly what I changed back to auto now.

Thanks for looking.
