Comment:A resubmission to replace an earlier post, with more open cropping and improved noise reduction and sharpening. Distracting elements in the background were addressed using modified luminosity masks and selective blur.
I think these common but very photogenic birds are one of the most striking of Australia's honeyeaters. Their characterful behaviour seems to fit appropriately with their Gaulish moustaches!
Equipment:Canon 7D
EF 100-400mm L IS MkI zoom at 400mm, handheld
1/500 sec, f6.3, ISO 400
Processing: Adobe CC Lightroom/Photoshop, noise reduction with Neat Image plugin
Location:Adventure Bay, South Bruny Island, southern Tasmania (Tasmania)
