Eastern Yellow Robin
A well-known bird of eastern Australia, present across a range of habitats and often present in larger, landscaped gardens. Usually present in pairs or small groups, it often hangs off tree trunks in its quest for forest floor titbits. It also sits patiently on favourite perches, waiting for opportunities. It has a pleasant call and can be surprisingly tame and inquisitive.
My first trip with a new lens to the Border Ranges. Sitting quietly at a picnic table I was surprised by this friendly little guy. Almost too close to focus on. Nikon 7200. Nikor 200-500 f5.6 ISO 200 @ 1/200.

A drizzling morning did not deter this perky little garden resident.
