Artist's Description

I followed this Indian Myna bird around for a while and grabbed a few shots as it jumped from rock to rock and tried to stay away from me. It’s the first time I have managed to photograph one – they’re very " flighty " when approached. It’s a species that was introduced to Australia around 150 years ago to help control certain insect pests, but it has thrived so well in Australia that it is now a pest itself.

The image was captured near the Harbour Foreshore in Newcastle using a Canon 450D:
F-stop: f/5.6
Exposure time: 1/250 sec.
ISO speed: ISO-320
Exposure bias: 0 step
Focal length: 250 mm [ on a 55-250 mm lens ]
Aperture Priority Mode
A slight contrast adjustment was made because this shot would have had better tones at -0.3 EV or possibly -0.7 EV.
