Blue Mountains, bush bashing around Katoomba

Zhengli had volunteered to take the Reimer's group out for a bit of bush bashing! We started out from a little sneaky free car park only few minutes walk from Echo point. After admiring the view towards the Three Sisters we started out down the mountain.

Superb Lyrebird, this one looks like a female. We saw 3 of these very close to the path in some dense bush. I tried using the flash for a couple of pictures, but a more "natural" look was achieved by pushing the ISO sensitivity up - this is taken at ISO 1250.
