CommentI've tended to find that in the open sandy ocean beaches favoured by this species, keeping a low profile, sitting tight and letting them approach me (rather than the other way around) is sometimes more likely to produce better photographic opportunities. This is ssp cucullatus of SE Australia.
EquipmentCanon EOS 7D II
EF 100-400 L IS II + 1.4x III TC, at 560mm, centre spot servo AF, handheld
Manual exposure, 1/1000 sec, f/11, ISO 800
Processing: DPP4 for RAW conversion and initial adjustments, then Photoshop where moderate noise reduction was applied with Neat Image. Size reduction to web submission dimensions was followed by final sharpening using Smart Sharpen.
(Kudos to Ian Wilson/Glenn Pure for DPP4-Photoshop workflow documentation)
LocationMarion Bay spit, southeast Tasmania, Tasmania
