Crazy looking ducks..

May 30, 2011

Australia certainly has to offer a variety of strange looking ducks.

Here are two examples. A male Pink-eared Duck and a male Musk Duck.



here’s one more example from yesterday, why I never leave the house without my flash anymore. The first image is the final and processed file. The two other images show the original and and image made a milli-second before the flashed image. The last two files are completely unprocessed out ouf camera. The light came from the left and made the Pelican’s face really dark. The flash, however, completely eliminated the side light and I was able to create this portrait image I was after for quite a while.

Isn’t the difference dramatic? With the flash I would not even have taken my camera out of the car.

The flash was set to – 1 2/3, which is not that strong, but the conditions qere quite dark, so it had a rather big imapct at that low power.

I recently finished processing a few more Orange-bellied Parrot (Neophema chrysogaster). It was an amazing feeling to be in the middle of nowhere to photograph these beauties. Aren’t their colors amazing?

And a close relative, the Blue-winged Parrot (Neophema chrysostoma)
