CommentDuring Covid lockdown in Melbourne we have spent time observing and photographing birds in our garden and nearby reserves. This was taken from our deck as the Kookaburra perched in a nearby Blackwood tree. There are many images of Kookaburras on the BLP Photogallery, but few are close headshots with prey. Here the prey is a yabbi.
EquipmentCanon EOS 90D + 400mm f/4 DO, handheld. Manual, spot metering, f/5.6, 1/ 400 sec, ISO 125. Processed with DPP4 & Photoshop Elements 15 with Neat Image 8.3.
