CommentWhile this image is a study of the less flambouyant female bird, it also conveys to the viewer that mulga parrots usually come to water in pairs or small flocks to drink. The light in this arid landscape can be harsh, but in the early morning is softer giving a more pleasing portrait. The aperture was closed down (f10) giving enough depth of field to get both birds in focus. Both birds are looking at the camera, so the viewer feels part of the scene.
EquipmentCanon EOS 7D MkII + 400mm f/4 DO II, handheld. Manual, partial metering, f/10, 1/ 500 sec, ISO 500, -2/3 exposure compensation. Processed with DPP4 & Photoshop Elements 15 with Neat Image 8.3.
LocationKirkalocka Station, Murchison region, Western Australia
Keywordsfemale, adult
