Maggi.
A juvenile Aussie Magpie waits for an invitation to join us for lunch at the Wollombi Tavern. The local birds here have very good table manners.
Captured at AP f11.0, 1/80th second and 320-ISO.

    Very considerate of Maggie to wait until she's asked rather than dive-bombing your table! Pretty markings!

I suppose those are common birds where you are, but seem so exotic to us. :-) Nice work on this, John!

How cute, John, and polite, too! We have magpies here in New Mexico (in the north) but I have never been successful in capturing one.

Great capture John. Great clarity and depth of field. Our magpies are hardly that polite here, in fact we steer well clear of them if we hear or see them.

I could hear some singing last night while I was capturing my star trails. A terrific capture.
