Location: Kings Billabong, Mildura, VIC (14/08/2012)
Gear: Canon 7D and EF400 5.6L @ F7.1 1/800 ISO800 400mm
A bird of the drier country and one I was glad to finally get a photo of. I saw this species in Gluepot and Hattah but they seemed to be very busy feeders not landing on any perch in nice light. I thought I was going to miss out but luckily on the very last afternoon on the way back we stopped at Kings Billabong just outside Mildura and we found a couple of pairs in the woods. Thanks for looking.
