Chestnut-backed Antbird

Image # 1D2_05113

Carara National Park


Canon 70-200L/f2.8 IS, with 2x II Teleconverter, at 400 mm

ISO 800, f/5.6, 1/250 second

Manual Exposure, 550EX at 0 EV



This was another unusual sighting, and my first glimpse of an antbird. They typically stay deeply in the vegetation, making shooting them very difficult. While this shot has obvious deficiencies, I was excited to get any shot at all where basically the entire bird can be seen.
