This spectacular little bird was definitely one of my favorites from this trip, and I took quite a few frames. The intensity of the colors of both feathers and legs was something to behold. As explained in the previous shot, the rapidly changing light made it difficult to get consistent exposures, so for a while I just put it into Aperture Priority, with some minus EV to maintain detail in the highlights.
