CommentThis image was processed to maximize contrast on the tag: R2 (Light and distance were considerable constraints and I was rushing to try to get any pic at all of the tag). I was also practising my New Year's resolution: using back button focus...
This image has been forwarded to the team which is studying the movements of Latham's Snipe. They are thrilled, and I am in line for a tangible reward: Neil Hermes 'Birds of the Australian High Country'.
(ID 24651 and related images were captured a few hundred meters from this location and relate to the same project.)
