Happy Snaps - Little Wattle Bird chicks '08
Im pretty happy with this shot. I think its the best shot that I could have gotten under the shooting circumstances - and WOW - my timing was right on. Birds are amazing - Im so glad Ive planted lots of trees for them.
Little Wattle Bird parents spend all thier time catching insects while they have chicks in the nest. Although its not our idea of 'good protein', the insect diet does grow bird chicks with lightning speed. These chicks leave the nest just 14 days after hatching!
