CommentThis was a difficult shot as the Dusky Moorhan was hiding in the undergrowth and reeds requiring me to lie flat and soot between the reed beads. The light was not brilliant thus the high ISO. Ultimately I like the image and the positioning for the bird which was only in the optimum position for a few seconds.
EquipmentCanon 7DII. 150-600mm Sigma S. Tripod with Gimbal head. 1/1000, f8, ISO3200, 600mm
LocationYan Yean Reservoir, Victoria
