Southern Rough-winged Swallows

Image # 1D2_05755

Amazon River


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

ISO 640, f/10, 1/500 second

Manual Exposure

Handheld (possibly with Monopod)

This shot was also taken from the canoes - we were able to almost silently glide towards, and then even under this small group of Swallows, and could shoot as we got closer.  The sun was pretty intense, and the sweat was flowing freely, but this was a really neat experience.
