CommentI stopped to photograph some ibises, but when I got out of the car I realised that there were a number of birds in the area hawking for insects. This included three noisy Dollarbirds, as well as Magpies, Noisy Miners and a Black-faced Cuckoo shrike. This photograph is not critically sharp at 100% unfortunately, but the reduction from 30+ megapixels original to 1.5 megapixels for the web with additional sharpening has helped considerably.
EquipmentCanon 90D; Canon EF 100-400 L Mk II zoom. 400mm, ISO800, 1/1600s, f/5.6; processed in DxO Photolab 3.
