Bell Miner
Have given up on getting a better shot of this Bell Miner,for the time being,one of our honeyeaters,after trying for a couple of days.They are very noise ,but rarely came out into a sunny patch and usually high up in a tree.Thus just a record shot,as they have only just moved into our area.Sorry about the branch across the bird.

Mmmm.... they do seem to be a difficult subject Hans! We don't have too many pictures of them in the Gallery, and this is the first one to come in for over a year!

You've done a great job my friend - a super picture. Many thanks for showing him to us.
