Social Flycatcher

Image # 1D2_05714

Amazon River


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

ISO 400, f/8, 1/1000 second

Manual Exposure

Handheld (possibly with Monopod)

While this was a fairly commonly seen bird (also abundant in Costa Rica), there weren't too many opportunities to get close enough to photograph it.  For this shot, we were on a small lake, in canoes (actually 2 canoes strapped together for better stability), and didn't scare off the wildlife as quickly.
