Comment:At last I managed a shot of these birds in a relatively open, unobstructed situation. Taken on our bush block down the south coast of NSW near Eden. The bird on the left may be a female and the one on the right is immature, possibly male but difficult to determine sex. Thanks to Ian Wilson with assistance with these details. The birds turned up while we were eating breakfast soon after dawn: I slipped over to the sliding door and slowly opened it a crack so I could poke the lens out for this. These birds are extremely wary and will flit into the bush with virtually no provocation.
Equipment:Canon 80D with EF 100-400mm Mark 2, handheld at 400mm
1/160 sec, f6.3, ISO 2000.
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:Nethercote (New South Wales)
Keywords:immature, adult
