Australian Wildlife – Tawny Frogmouth Youngsters

A friend of the family suggested that I should bring my Camera out when I was going to visit their place today because a little family of Tawny Frogmouths have been sitting in a tree in the yard recently. Here you can see two little babies that were looking straight down the barrel of the lens as I clicked away, taking photos of them.

It’s only the second opportunity I’ve ever had to photograph this type of bird and the first time was over 3 years ago when all I had was a 6 MP Sony Cyber-Shot pocket camera. It was great to be able to use a Canon 450D and a 55 – 250 mm lens to zoom right in and capture the bird in more detail than I’d been able to previously. I was happy with my shots, but I still kicked myself later thinking about how I could have used an even smaller Aperture (and also use the Flash with the Flash Exposure Value below Zero) than some shots that were captured at f/8 – to obtain stronger focus and more fine detail.

An original digital photograph that was taken with a Canon 450D and a Canon 55 – 250 mm lens set at:
F-stop: f/5.6
Exposure time: 1/125 sec
ISO speed: ISO-200
Exposure bias: -0.3 step
Focal length: 250 mm
WB: Sunny
Aperture Priority Mode
Hand Held
