Infra Red

Little Huia

This is frame 0005 from a 7,200 shot infra red timelapse I captured yesterday, for the Ruru sequence from The BirdSong Preludes. My old mod’d 40D is unstoppable!

Relatedly when I was up at Whatipu last weekend shooting that sunset time-lapse, on the way down the hill I came very close to a Ruru/Morepork – it was maybe 2m away from me, and of course flew away as soon as I went to set up my camera but I am 99% sure its wings weren’t silent – I heard or felt infra sound, a very deep, low frequency thrum as it took off… quite beautiful!
