Well-well!
I've just discovered your blog on the 1srt of January, and this is simply a must!
I am so impressed with the quality of your pictures and the many different kinds of birds you photographed!
Since I have been to Aussie a couple of times, you can discover my passion about parrots on my blog!
We intend to go to Australia for good, my son is married and lives there with 2 kids!
So who knows??
I just started with birds, but I have been very keen on dragonflies for 3 years too!
I'll be back soon to discover more of your marvellous photography!
Cheers, Russell, and a happy NY!!

Beautiful action and BIF shots Russell. They are magnificent creatures. I especially like the landing shot.
