Hard to photograph species…

November 16, 2011

it’s always a thrill when you get the chance to photograph birds, which are almost impossible to photograph. Such a chance presented itself to me yesterday, when I discovered (thanks to a great tip by a friend) a Little Lorikeet nest almost at eye level. Usually these small birds are only seen high in the tree tops.

Heute gibts mal wieder eine nicht alltägliche Papageien bzw. Loriart zu sehen. Mit nur 15cm Länge gehört der Zwergmoschuslori zu den kleinsten Loris und hält sich zumeist nur in Baumwipfeln auf. Mit etwas Glück konnte ich jedoch ein Nest auf Augenhöhe finden 🙂

Since the nesting hole is surrounded by many leafes I was happy to have an overcast days. Otherwise I wuld have had heaps of annyoing shadows all over the bird. Since they are so small and to obtain a decent background I had to use the 2x TC. At shutter speeds of only 1/250 I had quite a few blurred imaged, but managed to get a few keepers in the end. 🙂
