Orange Chat (male)

October 20th, 2019
Lake Tyrrell, Sea Lake, Victoria, Australia

Canon EOS 1D X Mark II
Canon EF 600mm f4L IS II USM lens

The beautiful male Orange Chat. These wonderful little birds literally glow as they dart about their saltbush habitat hunting insects. A very tricky species to photograph! I managed this shot as the sun was setting, which really brought out that amazing colour!

Red-capped Plover chick
Charadrius ruficapillus

February 19th, 2018
Killarney, Victoria, Australia

Canon EOS 1D X Mark II
Canon EF 600mm f4L IS II USM lens
Canon EF 1.4x III Extender

Pretty exciting to find this little Red-capped Plover chick along the main beach at Killarney. They have so much to contend with, from humans, to dogs, to foxes.. it's a wonder any of them survive. Thankfully they have an excellent ability to hide, & this chick had two very watchful parents.

Tasmanian Boobook
Ninox leucopsis

October 13th, 2019
Cape Liptrap, Victoria, Australia

Canon EOS 1D X Mark II
Canon EF 100-400mm f4.5-5.6L IS II USM lens
Canon 600EX II-RT flash

For a few weeks during Spring each year, Cape Liptrap becomes a staging area for a flock of Tasmanian Boobooks before they head home across Bass Strait. It's suspected this subspecies of the Southern Boobook migrates to the mainland for the Winter. This is the second year I have visited this species at Cape Liptrap, it's a wonderful opportunity to see them up close as they hunt moths in the low-lying habitat.
