Photographed byGlenn Pure on Tue 17th Sep, 2019 and uploaded on Wed 6th Nov, 2019 .
CommentLarge numbers of stilts congregate on some of the lakes on Rottnest Island, occasionally taking to the air when spooked.
EquipmentCanon 80D with EF 100-400mm Mark 2, handheld at 400mm 1/4000 sec, f7.1, ISO 800. Initially processed in Canon DPP 4 to crop, adjust exposure and lighting and perform noise reduction (about half 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 and adjustments made to lighten shadows, darken highlights and increase midtone contrast as appropriate. Sharpened after resizing for upload.
LocationRottnest Island, Western Australia
Keywordsin flight, adult, breeding plumage/features
