CommentThis bird was part of a flock that flew across the road in front of my car on Upper Daintree Road The pictured bird stopped and clung to a grass stem in typical finch fashion and was , I believe , calling to keep in touch with the other birds. The bird's pose and the contrast to the green grass background are the features that appeal to me in this image.
EquipmentCamera body : Canon 5DSR Lens : Canon 500mm f4 L IS mk2 Image details : 1/800 sec f 7.1 ISO 100 No flash No image correction after download , just cropped.
