CommentI was fortunate to be up very close with my 2 year old granddaughter watching a pair of lovely Bush Stone-Curlews on Nth Stradbroke Island. Being able to admire their beautiful plumage, bill & eye, with the naked eye was a bonus. Fortunately I had my camera with me & managed to take some nice sharp shots, using a low aperture to blur the background & so put more focus on the bird's details. It was a sunny day & as the bird was in soft shadows, the lighting was sufficient to achieve a pleasing photograph. I also liked the reflection of the street & trees in his eye.
EquipmentNikon D90, Nikkor 55-300 4.5-5.6 G ED lens. ISO 640 180mm, f5.6,1/250.
LocationNth Stradbroke Island, Queensland
