CommentA family of these were regularly seen at the gardens - not surprising as the gardens represented an oasis in an otherwise parched landscape. These birds don't stand still for long but were delightful to watch as they foraged and interacted with one another. This one is hunting for prey in a patch of the attractive ground cover, Eremophila biserrata, a plant I have in my own garden (sadly no Babblers though).
EquipmentCanon 80D with EF 100-400mm Mark 2, handheld at 330mm 1/320 sec, f7.1, ISO 1600. 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 to the main subject(s) using Neat Image plugin for PSE. Stronger noise reduction was applied to the remainder. Main subject selected and adjustments made to lighten shadows, darken highlights and increase midtone contrast as appropriate. Inverse of main subject selected and adjustments made as appropriate to contrast, highlights, shadows and saturation to make the bird stand out more effectively. Main subject sharpened after resizing for upload.
