Manual Exposure


I was exploring the Lodge grounds before breakfast, when this Trogon showed up, first perching on an electrical wire.  I took a few shots there, but this wasn't an ideal perch, and the background was poor as well.  So I wanted around for a while, and it eventually flew to a different location, where this shot was taken.  Light was quite limited, and while I took some shots without flash, the ones where I did use it were much more acceptable.
