CommentWhat an exciting time of the year when the Rainbow Bee Eaters arrive to nest. This is my first capture of the season, as they fly around in search of insects. This one look as though it has just preened itself for the occasion. This is not the nesting site but the bush across the road. Up for the early light and I was well rewarded. Now the challenge to catch them in flight and with breakfast.
EquipmentCanon 6D: Lens 100-400mm: AV 5.6 Focal Length 400mm: ISO 500: TV 1/2000 : EV 11/3 Contrast and shadow adjustments in Lightroom; Denoise with Define2. Removed a couple of branches from he image.
LocationBibra Lake, Western Australia
