CommentA rare opportunity to photograph this species in southern Tasmania, as they visit here very infrequently. The attractive bottle-green iridescence flashes into prominence at certain angles to direct sunlight, so I gave this priority, but catching a simultaneous reflection was a welcome bonus.
EquipmentCanon EOS 7D II EF 100-400 L IS II + 1.4x III TC, at 560mm, centre spot servo AF, handheld Manual exposure, 1/1600 sec, f9, ISO 1000, spot metering Processing: Canon DPP4 for RAW conversion, lens corrections and initial exposure corrections, shadow adjustment, NR and sharpening. Then 16-bit TIFF export to Photoshop CC2019 for further NR using Neat Image plugin applied at different levels to bird and background. Final sharpening was applied to the bird only, after size reduction to competition dimensions.
LocationGoulds Lagoon, Granton, southern Tasmania (Tasmania)
Keywordsfeeding, adult, non-breeding plumage
