Comment:The bird was having a good shakedown and has dislodged a plume. Note the fluff in the air around it from the shakedown. I have another shot with head side-on showing the gape finishes under the eye, not behind it, indicating an Intermediate Egret. Also identified as such by Prof Hugh Possingham (taken while on an organised bird walk in the arboretum).
Equipment:Canon 80D with EF 100-400mm Mark 2, handheld at 400mm
1/400 sec, f7.1, ISO 800.
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:Sherwood Arboretum (Queensland)
Keywords:adult, breeding plumage
