CommentI like this image because of the angle of the bird's head and the detail that the image displays.
I was experimenting with a 2X extender, looking for small birds, when this emu appeared on the edge of a clearing. I stepped backwards several meters in an attempt to fit it into the frame whereupon it walked up to within a few paces from me. Naturally I had to take its portrait! Camera hand held.
EquipmentCanon 1DX Mk. II with Canon 400 mm. f.4. DO IS USM lens and Canon X2 extender.
1/1000 sec. f.8. ISO 1600. Hand held.
LocationPinch River KBA, New South Wales
