Happy New Year Everyone!

Here's a favourite from my recent Bolivia trip. These guys are pretty fast flyers so this one had a pretty high degree of difficulty. But with some good technique, a bit of patience and some luck I was able to nail this guy :-)



Camera Model: Canon EOS 7D
Shutter speed: 1/1600 sec
Aperture: 6.3
ISO: 400
Focal length: 500mm + 1.4x

P.S. For tips on tropical photography (including flight photography) be sure to check out my new E-book "The Guide to Tropical Nature Photography - http://www.theguidetotropicalnaturephotography.com/

When you have plenty of the first two, you may not need the last. Fabulous image as always. Look forward to your posts on this page.

Glenn,

Another beauty!
I suspect you always carry a twenty-pound sack of "luck" with you wherever you go.  Wink

Another winner Glenn.
I fully appreciate the difficulty of that shot.

BTW are we ever going to see you in Australia.
The parrots here need to be seen to be believed - technicolour dreamcoat stuff - no to mention all the other species.

I will certainly check out your e-book.
