Well done - I have only seen them before at Pafuri .

I also can't believe my eyes at the quality of digital photography . And the telephoto power of the zoom . This kind of photo was nigh impossible pre-digital era .

Agree, White-browed Scrub-Robin (or just Robin). Quite a young one I think.

Hi there and welcome :D

I see that you are trying to upload the image from your computer's hard drive.

for in order for us to see the image's ,you will have to upload the image to a website like http://www.tinypic.com" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false; and then use the [img][img] tags, like you did above, to post the link it gives you once the image is upload onto their website :wink:
