Hi all,

I am Petar also known as poida, i live in the wollondilly area of Macarthur region.

i been doing photography for few years now mostly landscape, Nature.(Petar B Photography)

Been trying to get bird shots in between as area around me has huge abundance of bird species.

Was not till earlier this year i seen Sacred kingfisher near bargo river i started thinking about getting new lens as one i had was always soft with bad CA on any length.. i gave up after couple weeks.

then recently last month i seen kingfisher photos from another photographer made me think about going thirlmere lakes again (supposedly 150 species of birds there) seen 2 kingfishers in the area manage to get an ok shot of and rufous fantail.

finally thought stuff it time for new wildlife lens and get stuck into it. to my surprise sacred kingfisher rocks up in back yard... idk if that is a sign or not but man i was excited and that first shot with so much detail spent every morning at thirlmere lakes N.P. my fave would have to be the little black cormorant flying after motorbike scared it off near the lake..

ill be marking every bird i find on my little google map around thirlmere lakes hopefully i can find all 150 species or even 100 who knows time will tell i am happily hooked.

Hi Petar/Poida

Sorry that no one has responded yet. I think we are all busy at this time of the year, or travelling.

Anyway welcome to the BirdLife Phito site. I hope you enjoy your membership with us. Bird photography is such a rewarding activity, I am not surprised you are getting hooked. If you want advice on getting equipment post something on our forum. I am sure that people will be happy to help although you may need to be patient over Christmas!

Cheers

Simon
