CommentDuring the summer I discovered a pair of Australasian grebes with young on a local farm dam. Just after dawn I waited, concealed in the reeds, for about 2 hours before the birds approached. There was so much smoke haze from the bushfires that there was really insufficient light as the birds were constantly moving but I managed to capture a couple of frames. I applied auto haze reduction in post processing.
EquipmentCanon 1DX Mk.II Canon 600 mm. f.4. IS USM lens with 1.4X extender. 1/800 sec. f.8. ISO 1600 Skimmer for support.
