Aracari

Nikkor 200-500 VR/TC 14 III @280mm, f8, ISO 3200 Nikon D750
Pale-mandibled Aracari; it may seem an easy shot but 2 seconds earlier the bird was in flight, one second before this exposure it continued that movement up the branch ("got" both the shots) and right now is climbing.
I was lucky for the timing as he must have stopped for a fraction of a second and I got just one shot – the camera is on 1/500s shutter speed, and I am very close (relatively faster movement).
