CommentExcrement of Southern Cassowary- what a variety of fruits and nuts! I'm not certain of the lens that was used but I suspect it was a small Sigma Zoom, 28-200 from memory. This image demonstrates why cassowaries are such important dispersers of seeds in the north Queensland rainforests.
EquipmentCanon EOS 10D lens at 100mm. f/27, 1/200 sec, ISO 100. Flash fitted to camera.
LocationEcho Beach, Queensland
