A Great Egret flies toward the rising sun over Lake Tinaroo
This is the first Beach stone-curlew I have seen in 20 years on the Northern Beaches of Sydney where I live. The lone bird has been hanging around Long Reef aquatic reserve for the last two months. To create this image, I used a ground pod to mount my camera gear and crawling inch by inch on the reef at low tide to approach the bird. Nikon D850, Nikkor 400mm f/2.8D II+TCx2.0, @800mm, 1/500″, f/11, 320 ISO.
I was at the parking lot of Erskine Falls near Lorne, Victoria. I had just parked my car and heard a very distinctive call. Straight away I know it was a male pink robin. It perched nicely on a wooden fence. My lucky day. Camera – Nikon D500, lens – Nikkor 200-500mm, ISO – 1600, Shutter speed – 1/125, F/7.1
Nikon D800E, 1/1252Sec., f5.6, 400mm, overcast sky at 11:42am. I saw the bird up ahead on a country road and immediately slowed my car right down to about 15km per hour, and photographed the bird as I drew alongside through the open passenger window.
Nikon D880E, 400mm, f5.6, 1/200, ISO 5000 at 8:34am in low light in forest canopy, moving slowly along a designated path and stopping to watch and listen when a bird was sighted.
At 9:24am on a sunny day whist walking along the shoreline of the lake, this fellow flew into the tree we were passing under. Nikon D800E, f 5.6, 400mm, 1/500, ISO 2000.
I found this baby magpie in the bush on a rainy day. It was in full survival mode, the only discernible movement being a blink every so often. Canon 80D, 1/500s, f5.6, ISO640 @300mm
I inadvertently startled this heron late one summer evening and it flew away and perched in this dead tree. Shortly after I took this photo a whistling kite swooped in and chased it away. Canon 80D, 1/800s, f5.6, ISO250 @300mm
