Photos still needed for BOP’s and Bowerbirds

This is my last appeal for images that may be suitable for the Birds of Paradise and Bowerbirds title that is being finalised for A & C Black/Helm Publishers.
We can pay a modest fee if the image is used, and obviously credit the photo. My thanks to those who so kindly sent in some very useful photos thus far, I will let you know what gets chosen in due course.
