The above image of the Little Friar Bird has been captured at a grevillea in our garden. It is great to have some sort of feeder and flowers in your garden to attract the birds in your backyard. Generally it is best to use wild bird seed to to attract them.
Also it is a great idea to have plenty of plants such as grevillias and banksias which honey eaters will love.
This image was captured using a Nikon D700 camera and 300mm f/4 lens, a tripod and remote control cable release was used so as to not frighten the birds.
I have published another article hereabout constructing a remote cable release for the nikon 10 pin connector.
