This is to why I think these and the Hooded Robin are quite hard to get right all the time. Wonderful shot.
    Thanks Ralph. You're not wrong with how hard it is to get the exposure right because of the pitch black head and light grey body. The only way I can get it reasonable is in PP.

    The willies are not afraid of any other birds Phil and they are also very territorial, especially in Spring. I have a photo of them attacking an Australian Hobby (little falcon) and it just sat there like a stunned mullet. Those images were lost but I'll keep searching my backups.

    Thanks A&B. I do love to play with composites, just to keep the mind engaged.

    Nice shots. Looks like the others threw the middle one off in the first one.
    Thanks David, wanna add a caption?

    Thanks Stephen. I only noticed these shrikes a few years ago so they appear to be gradually accepting of suburbia.

    All good, but the first does it for me. Could be great caption there..............Perhaps "Take more water with it next time"...

    I thought it looked too good to be true. Very effective though. Well done.

    I dropped in a new sky and it looked better than the original grey sky. I couldn't get a shot with them all close enough for the frame, so I brought them all closer together. I shot the Willie the next day and it was a clear blue sky.

    started a topic Cuckoo Shrikes

    Cuckoo Shrikes

    These Black Faced Cuckoo Shrikes were playing around and getting bugs from my neighbours lawn. Very entertaining.
