Crimson Rosella

Crimson Rosella (Image ID 44303)
CommentI have chosen this image as it is an example of my successful efforts to capture bathing behaviour in low light conditions with movement to capture the essence of the moment. Eye is sharp and head and bill direction good. The composition works well and you can really feel the water. I did use a fill flash as I had to shoot @1/60s so to freeze the head needed the flash. Colour rendition is superb and accurate. The splash of water above the bird gives the action some drama and creates extra visual interest.
