[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
A little South Island tomtit - Petroica macrocephala macrocephala - peeks curiously from a silver beech trunk. These furtive little birds are uncommon & fall prey to intoruduced predators such as feral cats, rats, stoats, ferrets & even the Australasian brush-tailed opossum. However they often flit curiously through the rainforest, hoping to pick up the odd insect disturbed by the human interloper.

Hello Neil,
Beautiful capture,well composed and nice posture.

Hi Neil

You got this cute little birdie to pose so beautifully for you and the exposure too is spot on. Thought a simple Workshop to get rid of the noise and increase sharpness would enhance this otherwise lovely composition.


beautiful tiny bird. good angle. fantastic framing. tfs.
