Comment:Many grass trees were in flower on Mt Coolum and the honeyeaters were taking advantage. I saw quite a few scarlet honeyeaters (along with brown, Lewin's and blue-faced honeyeaters as well as friarbirds). As luck would have it though, I didn't manage a shot of an adult male in full splendor. I've lightened shadows on the bird's head.
Equipment:Canon 80D with EF 100-400mm Mark 2, handheld at 400mm
1/250 sec, f9, ISO 1000.
Initially processed in Canon DPP 4 to crop, adjust exposure and lighting and perform noise reduction. A 16 bit TIFF file was created from the RAW DPP image and finished in PSE (Adobe Photoshop Elements v9) where further noise reduction was applied to the main subject using Neat Image plugin for PSE. The background was noise reduced and the main subject sharpened after resizing for upload.
Location:Mt Coolum (Queensland)
Keywords:male, immature
