Comment:This was a lovely surprise. I had seen this species maybe twice in the past couple of years in the reserve. Yesterday, I saw three of them foraging on the ground with Yellow-rumped Thornbills - typcial behaviour apparently. Occasionally one would fly up into one of the Acacias so I was lucky to get this shot as they spent most of their time on the ground where they always seemed to be just too far away for a photo in spite of me chasing them around for maybe 45 minutes. This one appears to be a male based on the brown/black brow.
Equipment:Canon 80D with EF 100-400mm Mark 2, handheld at 400mm
1/640 sec, f7.1, ISO 1600.
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:Urambi Hills Reserve (Australian Capital Territory)
Keywords:male, adult
