Black-collared Hawk

Image # 1D2_05586

Amazon River


Canon 100-400L/f4.5-5.6 IS and 1.4x II Teleconverter at 560 mm

ISO 640, f/11, 1/1000 second

Manual Exposure

Handheld (possibly with Monopod)

We saw quite a few of these beautiful raptors, and were fortunate to have a few chances at catching them in flight.  When there was adequate light, I often stopped down to f/11 to minimize the image degradation inevitably produced by the use of the teleconverter on the 100-400.
