It's not an accident that I rarely post an image of a bird smaller than a duck. I still find small birds challenging and to be honest I don't see too many on my home patch. Today there were lots of these tiny thornbills in the trees close to the Farmers Markets. I'm happiest with the first image, as the face is sharper and most of the bird is visible, though the second image is sweet and shows how dainty the legs are, which I appreciate after looking at swans for so long!
