Just a photo I would like to share with you.
It has been taken at Monte Verde in Costa Rica.

Hi Hans, that's a lovely shot - can you tell us the camera, lens and settings you used - and also if there were any challenges - like focusing? Did the bird stay still for a long time, or was it really moving around fast?

Hi Gorden, thank you.
I used an Olympus E-500.
Lens 40-150 3.5-4.5 at 150 mm and aperture F 4.5
Shutter Speed: 1/160
Sensitivity: 320 iso

Focussing was really a challenge as the birds were moving around really fast and when they stayed still in the air, it was only for a fraction of a second.

Is it a crop, or is that the full image?

It's a crop. There were some plastic honeypots which I did not like.

This is a larger version.
