CommentI recently attended a birds-in-flight show at the David Fleay Wildlife centre in QLD. While everyone else was watching the sea eagle on show, I spotted a wild Nankeen Night-Heron that had flown into some nearby bushes. It sat quietly for some time, obviously hoping for some leftover fish. This allowed me to fire off a few shots, capturing the amazing colouring of this gorgeous bird. I was pleased how clearly the image documented the details of the eye and beak. You can even see the dry skin around the bird’s eye. The use of a zoom lens at 400mm helped to blur the surrounding vegetation, making the bird stand out.
