Comment:I was focussing on some red-capped plovers and red-necked stints at Soldiers' Beach in NSW when this ruddy turnstone popped up. A couple of quick shots and my camera died; I thought this was my last photo with my old faithful D700. On advice from a Nikon technician, I rubbed an eraser over the lens contacts and all seems good - a simple remedy and I'm happily snapping again.
Equipment:Camera: Nikon D700. Lens: 300mm f/4.0 with 1.4x teleconverter. 1/200 sec, f/5.6, ISO 400. Hand-held.
Location:Soldier's Beach (New South Wales)
Keywords:female, adult, breeding plumage
