Velvet Fronted Nuthatch (Sitta frontalis)
26 December 2007
Sirsi Timber Depot, Sirsi, Karnataka, India
Canon EF 500mm f/4L IS and 2X II on Canon 1D Mark III
ISO 400, 1/40 @ f11, Spot Metering -2/3 Stop
The trick to get sharp images using 2x converter on 500mm is to shoot at f11. This is the first time I have got a decent image of this species. Sirsi timber depot is an excellent place for shooting forest birds.
