Not often that I post a pic within a day of shooting. But yesterday afternoon I went for a wander to a patch of bush along side playing fields. The magpies were going nuts! They were behaving like a bunch of wild youths. No interaction with other birds, no obvious mating behaviour, just a bunch of about 7 or so, stopping in a tree for a bit and singing loudly, then all wheeling off and doing airobatics in the stiff afternoon breeze, then dropping to the grass of the playing field where I shot this. They would then all rinse and repeat. I have a handful of other shots of this amazing stuff that I will post shortly.

    I love this site. It is quite possibly my favourite on the net.

    Good low-level shot and subtle lighting.

    this shot so reminds me of afirca, the dryness, the time of day, the swaying reeds, not kamal or bad coffee adds

    nice, great atmosphere with the low angle and the light, the kid and the birds create a story to it all.
