During my road trip from Sydney to Broome in Australia, I encountered a captivating sight of numerous birds soaring near the roadside. At first, I mistook them for Falcons due to their swift flight. Intrigued, I decided to take a break from driving at a rest area. As luck would have it, I witnessed a fascinating spectacle of three birds playfully chasing one another. In my excitement, I hastily reached for my camera. However, in the process, I accidentally shifted the Sony 70-200mm G Master II’s aperture ring to F45 (yes, F45 with the 2x Converter attached), causing some difficulty in achieving proper focus.
It also forced the camera into using very high ISO settings between 4000 and 5000 ISO. Despite the setback, I managed to capture some decent shots of the birds, including a particularly remarkable one featuring a face-off between a Whistling Kite and a daring Crow that had landed on the same tree! I captured these birds again at Lake Arglye, where there were many.
