Swallow-winged Puffbird

Image # 1D2_05588

Amazon River


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

ISO 640, f/8, 1/1000 second

Manual Exposure

Handheld (possibly with Monopod)

I have previously seen other Puffbird species in Costa Rica and Brazil, but this was a new one for me.  As I indicated in the trip summary, I elected to leave my Tripod home, but I did bring and use my Monopod at times (with a Kirk BH-3 Ballhead and Wimberley Sidekick).  Unfortunately, I have no way to know which shots were taken with it.
