CommentI have wanted to photograph this species for a while and have now found some good habitat for them (incidentally also known Ground Parrot habitat). I saw at least two pairs of birds and the area of habitat was vast, covering many hectares so I'm sure there are more. I had stopped down to f9 in the hope of a close encounter so I might keep much of the tail in focus. However, I only got shots from some distance away. This one is a fairly hard crop.
EquipmentCanon 80D with EF 100-400mm Mark 2, handheld at 400mm
1/500 sec, f9, ISO 800
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.
LocationTrack between Saltwater Creek and Hegartys Bay, Ben Boyd National Park (New South Wales)
