    Default Air Brakes On!

    Attached Images Attached Images
     
    A Dollar Bird telling a Noisy Miner to *#^! off as it tries a bit of harassment.
    Not the best of perches but that's where the action was right in front of my place.
    5D4 600 f4 III HH
    Manual
    1/2000 f5 iso800

    Cropped, levels and S&H, light sharpen on the Dollar Bird, more on the Miner (still just off sharp).
    Oops, missed that sliver of power line bottom left.

    Classic! Great action shot Colin..he's really telling the Miner where to go. Well spotted.
    Don't you normally use a Canon 1DX2?

    Thanks Paul. I switch between bodies depending on the application and lens combo.
    With the straight 600 mm it will generally be the 5D4 because the extra pixels help with crops.
    With a 1.4x or 2x converter on the 600 I'll use the 1DX2 because AF is a bit snappier.

    I love the sharpness of the screaming bird. Not a huge fan of the wire perch ...
