Australian Bustard (female)
Ardeotis australis

November 2nd, 2018
Mount Carbine, Queensland, Australia

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

Pretty stoked with this shot. On my first visit to Maryfarms I saw quite a few Bustards but had very few photographic opportunities. After a frustrating couple of hours, as the sun was dipping below the horizon, I decided to call it a day. As I was leaving the area, this female flew across the road & landed right in front of my car just off the road. I pulled up, cranked the ISO & managed this full frame shot straight out of the passenger side window. Frustration quickly turned into elation!

Gang-gang Cockatoo (male)
Callocephalon fimbriatum

February 28th, 2020
Eltham, Victoria, Australia

Canon EOS 1D X Mark II
Canon EF 600mm f4L IS II USM lens
Canon 600EX II-RT flash with extender

Sometimes photographing Gang-gangs in Hawthorn bushes can be an exercise in frustration. Finding the birds is only part of the challenge; trying to work the available angles for a reasonable background & surrounds without intruding branches can be tough.

But the sense of satisfaction you feel when you can create a beautiful image incorporating these wonderful birds makes it all worth it.
