CommentMacquarie Isand is a very special place. It is not just the variety of species, but the actual biomass of shoreline inhabitants that was a privilege to experience. In this particular image I love the rain beading on an exquisite plumage with the blur of the colony in the background. But even more than that,capturing the open eye in sharp focus, tells you something about the harsh existence of the individual within the many.
EquipmentNikon D850, Nikon AF-S 400mm 2.8E FL ED lens.
f/5.6 1/250 iso 12,800 400mm
