One day I am going to get a picture of a Rainbow Pitta (Pitta iris) that does justice to this little jewel of the monsoon forests and vine scrubs of the Top End of the Northern Territory and the Kimberleys in Western Australia. It’s very, very difficult. At East Point we have prime habitat of vine forest and just about anytime you visit you will hear them calling to one another. Walk quietly along the walking track and suddenly one will be there, amongst the leaf litter or perched on a low branch. Three problems: the first is that they don’t stay in one place for very long, secondly, you’re trying to get a shot through a tangle of vine and scrub and thirdly the light even on a sunny day is very dim deep in the scrub. I live in hope.
