    Not a great shot, yesterday evening I could only get an image at 1.5 seconds with ISO 1600 and I can't hand-hold at best of times. So reluctantly used in-camera flash, Nikon D70, Sigma 150 macro lens. It was a real privilege just to see this fellow, Lyrebirds are so shy and relatively rare. Hope I can come across him again in better light. (Taken in Sherbrooke Forest near Melbourne).

  2. Neat bird, are you in Monbulk or Lilydale??

    Thanks Geoff. Live in Belgrave, but get across to Lilydale at weekends (flyball training with the dogs) so go past the Forest often. Catch 22 - no Forest entry with dogs on or off lead. Had only taken the macro lens yesterday looking for fungis, and got caught out in the dark - the Lyrebird was a real bonus, as I hadn't seen much in the way of toadstools. When were you over here?
