Manual Exposure


We were getting ready to head out for our first Boat tour, either just before, or just after breakfast, when this beautiful Woodpecker flew by, then perched in a tree or two, as we all scrambled to find a decent shooting angle.  There was little light under the trees, especially this early in the morning, so I had to use some flash to get some light on the Woodpecker.
