Rufous Antpitta (Ecuador)
« on: March 19, 2013, 11:12:01 AM »

Any day you photograph an Antpitta is a good day!

I managed to get this cute little fellow up on a nice perch for the participants of my recent Ecuador Workshop.

All the best!

Really lovely.
In contrast to my statement about the owl, I like the highlights in this bird's eyes. Perhaps you need to start carrying special eye lights for various size eyes.  ;)

How do you choose ISO, Glenn? My 50D seems to get noisy above 400. You must shoot under pretty low light.
