Australian Logrunner Taken at Dorrigo NP by 

The Australian Logrunner is one of the most difficult birds to photograph as it lives in the thick forest floor and scratches in the leaf litter looking for food. It is always dark where they live and the undergrowth make photography difficult.

This shot was take using a Nikon 400mm f2.8 lens wit a x2 teleconvertor on a Nikon D4 Camera. ISO was set at 6,400 – f5.6 and 1/80 sec.

I specialise in Photographing birds in their natural environment. To date I have photographed over 450 Australian species. If you like to view great bird shots please visit my site. I also like to photograph Landscape scenes but this is my second choice. I love nature and love to see and capture it when it is living free.
