Lyrebird song - Stephen Powell Wildlife Artist

Gday, Stephen here I hope you enjoy this video! This lyrebird is just 1 of 10 lyrebirds heard singing during a late afternoon walk in the Dandenong Ranges National Park. I was able to film 3 birds from as close as 2 meters. My apologies to the video purists as it is not very steady. Unfortunately, I was not equipped for filming. I don't normally carry a tripod but prefer a Cullman 080 Shoulder-Table-Pod used as a shoulder stock. This is great for getting grab shots and is much steadier than handheld. However, is not suited to filming. Combined with the weight of the 7D and zoom is a strain and the results are less than perfect. The conditions were also difficult. Cloudy and late in the day. High ISO also diminished the quality. None the less I was very pleased with what I managed to get. Filmed on a handheld Canon EOS 7D Lens EF100-400mm f/4.5-5.6L IS USM.
