Heart Spotted Woodpecker (Hemicircus canente)
22 March 2008
Salim Ali Bird Sanctuary, Thattekkad, Kerala, India
Canon EF 500mm f/4L IS and 1.4xII on Canon 1D Mark III
ISO 500, 1/160 @ f7.1 Evaluative Metering at -1/3 Stop
I was waiting to shoot the sunbirds when this came and perched at close quarters. The 1D Mark III was able to achieve instant focusing and I was able to capture it. A first timer for me.
