Some birds are really hard to photograph. They hide themselves amongst twigs and leaves and you might see a piece of bird but rarely the whole thing. Not so the Lemon Bellied Flycatcher (Microeca flavigaster) in my experience. It gives the impression it wants its photo taken. I came up with a theory today— I think the bird is intrigued by the shiny lens. It came out from the shrubbery and perched close up to cock its head and stare straight down the lens barrel. I love ‘em!
