CommentThis juvenile Kingfisher was perched on an old dead wattle tree in our back paddock, waiting patiently ,as they do, for an unsuspecting lizard or grasshopper to pass by. I was very pleased to capture the instant just before the grasshopper disappeared.
EquipmentCanon EOS R5 ,Canon EF 300mm f/2.8L IS II USM , Ext EF 2x III 1/2500sec @ f/5.6 ISO 800 focal length 600mm. Spot metering. Tripod. Raw file processed in Lightroom Classic and Topaz De Noise AI and then transferred a tiff to Photoshop. In Photoshop I cloned out a few branches at the bottom of the image before downsizing and final sharpening before saving.
LocationNarrabri, New South Wales
Keywordsjuvenile, feeding/with prey
