Flame Robins

September 4, 2012

Flame Robins (Petroica phoenicea) are certainly among the most striking birds in the world. You can see their vibrant orange-red already from far away. Photographing them is not quite easy and I didn’t manage a great image until yesterday. I was walking along a snow covered summit near Melbourne, when I discovered a group of these birds. I was stoked to find out that they were quite willing to cooperate.

All images taken with 1D Mark IV + 600 L IS + 1.4x TC III
