Comment:A flock of Fairy Martins was collecting mud by the side of the road, building their nests under a nearby bridge. This was adjacent to the temporary visitors' centre at the Warrumbungle National Park, NSW. The combination of direct sunlight and reflection from the wet mud made for difficult lighting conditions, which I have attempted to adjust for in post processing.
Equipment:Canon 80d; Canon EF 100-400 L Mk II zoom. 400 mm, ISO 320, 1/640 sec at f.7.1, +1/3 EV. Raw file processed in Lightroom 6.
Location:Warrumbungle National Park (New South Wales)
Keywords:adult
