evening light, minute crop (< APS-H)
From time to time Macaw's sharp call resounds through the jungle
before they are seen briefly flying by. That was a signal for boosting the exposure
(our cameras can’t expose for highlights), AISO shutter speed, change the focus point pattern
and start persuading our setup to focus on the birds that will any second come into view
from somewhere or have already come. Usually, from the opposite side you are just facing:)
Here I managed the focus points and was lucky for the exposure (strong highlights).
