looks like you have a good zoom or do they let you get that close

Floralhead ... these two were following me around the garden that day and perching on branches close-by. I didn't have to zoom too much at all ... they're still not what I would call 'friendly' but more like 'comfortable' with my presence.

What a cute little pair :)

Yes there certainly are, Tasteyg ... they were buzzing me in the garden today!! I think they might be two of the juvenile males in the family that lives here.

Thanks Neellan ... you're right in calling them a pair too. I think they're siblings ... probably young teenagers ... and they're usually together. They travel around like a pair of best buddies.

Glad you enjoyed the snapshot, Shirley. These two are like cheeky little children ... they follow me around the garden and keep an eye on me!

Doesn't really compare with a solitary Robin daring to sit on the fork handle in my garden!

Ha ... well I've never seen a Robin up close, so I'll take your word for that. Right now I'm sitting here listening to the Red-Tailed Black Cockatoos having a feast on the Cadaghi Gum flowers and fruit ... I'll be cleaning up the mess all afternoon!

Ha ... no Marguerite these little blighters don't seem all that frightened by me! I think it's because they've grown up here and are probably used to me wandering around the garden.

As for those horrid Cockatoos ... I cleaned up that mess and came home from work today to find an even bigger one! Unfortunately it's right where we walk into the courtyard to enter the house!
