CommentWe only have a couple of shots of these in flight in our image library. These were seen at the golf course on the island and were extremely flighty. I couldn't get anywhere near them (unlike most of the birds on Lord Howe Island). My thanks To Jack Shick for showing us around and some help with the ID on this one too.
EquipmentCanon 80D with EF 100-400mm Mark 2, handheld at 400mm 1/3200 sec, f7.1, ISO 1250. Initially processed in Canon DPP 4 to crop, adjust exposure and lighting and perform noise reduction (at about 50% of default values). 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 using Neat Image plugin for PSE. Adjustments made to lighten shadows, darken highlights and increase midtone contrast as appropriate. Sharpened after resizing for upload.
LocationLord Howe Island, New South Wales
Keywordsin flight, adult
