CommentI love this image of a Buff-banded Rail! I took it on Lord Howe Island in December 2019 and this was my first dedicated birding trip. I learned a lot about bird behaviour and how to get close enough to them for close photos as well as paying more attention to photo 'set-up' etc. This photo is only slightly cropped and I was thrilled with the detail I was able to capture. The fact that the bird's eye and beak on on the same plane enabled me to get both in focus and there was just enough light to get that 'catchlight' in his eye.
EquipmentNikon D7500
Tamron 15-600mm f/5-6.3 G2
