Comment:Most photographs of the Tasmania’s endangered endemic Forty-spotted Pardalote depict a beautiful little sedate bird quietly perched on a white gum branch. However this image, captured early January during a half-day tour of Dr Tonia Cochran’s 500 hectare Private Conservation Reserve Inala on Bruny Island, shows another side of their persona. Whilst Tonia often observes this aggressive type of behaviour, it’s very rare to have the opportunity to photograph it and especially in close quarters.
Equipment:Canon 5D Mark III
EF 400mm f/5.6L USM (1/1000 sec at f/5.6, ISO 400, 400mm)
Handheld
Location:Inala, Bruny Island (Tasmania)
