CommentI entered this photo because I was pleased with the light. It was taken just before sunrise and allowed a reflection photo without water ripple band reflections covering the parrot. I also like this photo because I felt confident when I took it - I was under my bird-hide, in the right location, the bird was relaxed, the light source and direction was good and I had several opportunities to take shots and review and adjust my camera settings before the bird flew off. One of the few times I didn't feel rushed and I thought that I was at last getting myself more organised and better disciplined with my photography.
EquipmentCanon 7D Mark II with Canon 600mm f4/L USM non IS lens at 600mm, 1/250 sec, f7.1, ISO 800 on tripod under bird-hide.
LocationCocoparra National Park (Griffith) (New South Wales)
