Shot Notes

This is a satin bowerbird on Wahlubal Land in New South Wales. The male birds use bits of blue plastic to decorate their courtship area and attract females. This behaviour attacted a biologist Aussies call The Bro aka David Attenborough.

I think this one was eyeing up the blue stripes on the side of my van.

I am now on Nganyaywana Land which has a cool forest full of mountain bike trails where I can recreate the Endor speeder chase with the whirring sound the old motor makes on my solar powered bike.
