We were just setting out for a hike, and Marco found this cute little bird at the edge of the forest.  We quietly set up our gear to photograph him.  Once again, light was limited, and he was in the shadows, but he stayed in the same perch for quite a while.  I took a variety of shots, with and without flash, altering my ISO and shutter speeds.  Wanting to reduce my ISO as much as possible, I took this one at 1/50 second, much slower than I normally want for this focal length!
