I appreciate the subtlety of colour of these Australian birds.

Hi, nice shot. I've never seen one like this with the bronze colour on the wing.
The photo with the bee is good also.

Mandy I think we are the luckiest country on the face of the earth. We are lucky that the subjects are so biodiverse and interesting. Cheers, Elizabeth

doug,
I waited and waited for the wing and the sun to be at the right angle so that the bronze was evident. Sometimes with these pigeons the bronze is not immediately visible. Thank you for your comment.
Cheers Elizabeth
