CommentI liked the low perspective of this image with the early morning light on the bird and background. The relaxed nature of the bird as it went about feeding added to the moment and the overall appeal of the image.
EquipmentCanon 7DII - 500mm F4L IS USM, 1/250 at F11, ISO 1000, 500mm. Beanbag at water level. Processing: Topaz Denoise, cropped in Lightroom, then slight colour adjustments, exported to Photoshop for selective sharpen. Cloned out a few very small distracting water highlights.
LocationInverell, New South Wales
Keywordsfeeding/with prey, adult
