Comment:It is not hard to see why the Pheasant Coucal is such an awkward bird in flight. As this photo shows, it's back end is really weighed down. This bird was taking refuge on the high overhead wires after being flushed from a nearby palm tree on a suburban street at Mission Beach.
Equipment:Canon 5D Mark iv
Canon 200-400 f4
iso 800 - 1/2000 - f8 - 362mm - manual exposure - hand held with monopod
Initially processed in Canon DPP 4 to crop, adjust exposure and lighting and perform noise reduction on bird. A 16 bit TIFF file was created from the RAW DPP image and finished in PSE (Adobe Photoshop Elements CC) where the background was noise reduced and the main subject sharpened.
Location:Mission Beach (Queensland)
Keywords:adult
