CommentI took this photograph several years ago, and it remains one of my favourites. I have submitted it into this competition because I believe it not only complies with the entry criteria, but also offers something a little different in terms of the lighting. For me it's strongest points are the clean, well lit lines which demarcate the bill and forehead while the back part of the head fades away into the shadows; and the warm chestnut colour of the breast.
EquipmentSony Alpha A7R mk iii with Sony 100 - 400mm f5.6 @ 400mm. Shutter 1/1000, f5.6, ISO 400.
LocationLake Joondalup, Western Australia
