Rufous-tailed Jacamar

Image # 1D2_05404

Pantanal, Brazil


Canon 100-400L/f4.5-5.6 IS at 400mm

ISO 1600, f/5.6, 1/500 second

Manual Exposure


This was was on the river trip we took at the end of the day towards the end of our stay in the Pantanal. The size and construction of the boat we used wasn't really adequate to use my big lens and tripod, so I just had the trusty 100-400 along for this trip. This beautiful Jacamar was in some fairly deep shadows (hence the 1600 ISO), but did allow us to approach reasonably close for some decent shots.
