    Great shot Kym and welcome to CiC.

    I do like the Willie Wagtails and the background to this is beautiful. I sell my prints at markets and my shot of a Willie is my best seller. I am sure this would be too.

    By the way I was in Adelaide just last Wednesday. I said to my partner I really needed to spend a bit of time wondering around the older buildings, etc. They are beautiful.

    Is it my imagination or is this beautiful? So cute and funny, too! The bokeh, the post, the wee birdies tail and..... the expression on the bird's face (?) are fascinating to me.

    There were juveniles in the tree next to the post and this was one of a pair, parents I assume, they were very fiesty.
