CommentSubspecies phaeton, showing a few signs of immature plumage, I think. There were quite a few immature birds of this species seen. This is another shot taken next to a feeder where the station managers put out seed regularly during the dry season - they don't in the wet season when there is plenty of natural seed to eat. I have used a little fill flash to lift this one (just the built-in camera flash).
EquipmentCanon 80D with EF 100-400mm Mark 2, handheld at 400mm
1/160 sec, f8, ISO 1600.
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.
LocationEllenbrae Station, Gibb River Road, Kimberley (Western Australia)
