The Australian Reed-warbler (Acrocephalus australis) is a challenging species to photograph. It's fidgety and rarely remains still long enough, while in full view, for photographers to acquire focus and compose the shot.
Perhaps the best opportunities to photograph reed warblers occur in places where they are accustomed to humans, such as along the walking track beside the Macintyre River in the heart of Inverell.
The best images in this audio-visual are stills lifted from video footage. At the time—2014—this was the best way for me to capture the peak of the action. Nowadays, I have more sophisticated equipment that improves my odds remarkably.
