Birds of Uluru

Uluru / Australia / Wild Places

A short collection of birds enjoyed while visiting Uluru Kata Tjuta National Park in 2018. I'll let you in on a secret, most of these shots were actually taken around the hotels at Yulara, with only a few locations inside the park proving to be as fruitful. All the birds are genuinely wild, captured without the help of food or audio attractants. All I did was take slow walks through the grasslands, gardens and trails of Yulara and the national park.

Images here were taken with a Lumix G9 and the Leica 100-400mm f/4-6.3 lens. I believe this rig is an exceptionally powerful tool for chasing bird photos. It's light and powerful with an amazing autofocus system and generous viewfinder. I typically run this around 15fps but it can do 60fps shooting RAW if that floats your boat.
