Brolga by WindCrest Brolga by WindCrest
Brolga- Grus rubicunda

These birds feed mainly on tubers, grains, mollusks and insects. Breeding in North Australia occurs from Feb to June, The nest is a simple platform of dry grasses beside swampy grasslands. Brolgas have an interesting display of bowing and bobbing heads to deter other birds as they shake with half open wings and advance toward each other then throw their heads back and trumpet. They also leap into the air and fall back down with wings spread like a parachute.

brilliant detail! they certainly are goofy looking birds. that eye looks like it's got a bit of insanity behind it. but what i really love is the color and ambiguous shapes of the blurred bg here. nice.

Oh yes, I love this lens--I do a lot of photography in low light (dance competitions and performances) so I need the large aperture.
