CommentWe had had a big day at the Western Treatment Plant and had stopped for a cup of coffee at the Boat Ramp. I had the camera set for photographing raptors in flight and just as we sat on the tailgate with cup in hand this Fieldwren popped up onto the wire a few metres up from us. I grabbed the camera and just shot without time to change settings. Normally I would not have used such a high shutter speed, but was not too concerned anyway as I would much have preferred for him to be up on the top of a bush. So now this one has come in handy for a Bird on Wire shot.
EquipmentNikon D500, Nikon 200-500 F5.6 @ 500mm exposed at 1/4000sec, f8 & ISO 1600
LocationWestern Treatment Plant, Victoria
