This is one of my favorite birds, which I hadn't seen since my 2nd trip to Costa Rica many years ago, in the Osa Peninsula.  This one was in a tree along the shore, heavily shadowed (which required ISO 3200).  As he moved, and the boat moved, it was a challenge getting him in the viewfinder, but I was fortunate to get a few relatively clear glimpses, as in this shot.
