Comment:After not having seen this species until about a month ago, I've now had 3 separate sightings. This one was perched quietly in a stand of Melaleucas next to a wetland. The white spot on the nape, which is one of the identifying characteristics, is just visible.
Equipment:Canon 80D with EF 100-400mm Mark 2, handheld at 400mm
1/400 sec, f7.1, ISO 1250.
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:Panboola Reserve, Pambula (New South Wales)
Keywords:male, adult
