ISO 640, f/5.6, 1/500 second

Manual Exposure



I'm always reluctant to post images of captive birds, but I made an exception for this and the final image in this gallery. The Aviary at La Paz is very large, open and natural, and getting decent shots is by no means easy. This was a magnificently colored bird, and occurs naturally in Costa Rica.
