Eastern Spine bill....again. Sorry
But once the Correas finish flowering, he's off. This afternoon, both he and I managed to position ourselves better. No annoying twigs to get in the way. At the time of the pic, he was happily banging out a song, hence the open beak.
5D3 with 300mm f4 + 1.4x TC III. This time, with the help of a winter sun, I could stop down half a stop, which helped with the DOF. I find the 1.4x TC can take the edge off the sharpness (or affect the focus) just slightly. Stopping down even half a stop makes a difference.
