Indigo Bunting

August 20, 2019

After two days of doing nothing but trying to get this shot of an Indigo Bunting perched here, I got it done. I’m honestly a little surprised since most of the time things don’t work out exactly as planned and compromises happen. Now that I’m seeing the final image, I think the next step is trying for a smaller perch that’s more appropriate for their body size. Time’s running out fast for these guys sticking around though.

Captured with the Canon EOS-1D X and Canon EF 500mm f/4L IS USM +1.4x III on August 19, 2019 at 6:55 PM. I used AI Servo AF mode and multi-segment metering. Auto WB setting.

Raw processed in DPP4.
