Crimson-crowned Woodpecker

Image # 1D2_05748

Amazon River


Canon 100-400L/f4.5-5.6 IS and 1.4x II Teleconverter at 200 mm

ISO 800, f/8, 1/640 second

Manual Exposure

Handheld (possibly with Monopod)

This photo was actually taken a little while before we came across the Swallows from the previous shot, and was also taken during the canoe ride.  Our guide spotted this beautiful woodpecker, and we quietly pulled in as close to the shore as we could, and shot for 10 to 15 minutes.  Once again, the heat was formidable, but this was one of the most exciting encounters for me on this trip.
