Chestnut mandibled toucan Costa Rica - Arenal 2010

Shutter: 1/200th Aperture: f9 ISO:400 Fill flash with flash extender

Camera: Canon EOS 7D

Lens: Canon EF 800mm f5.6 with Canon 1.4x II

Original size: 5184 x 3456 pixels


This chestnut mandibled toucan sitting on the nest was taken while standing in the road at considerable distance so was not being disturbed. Thanks to Doug Brown whos workshop I was attending for the loan of the 7D to give that extra reach. The combination of 7D with 800mm and 1.4x allows an incredible working distance without having to crop the image but requires live view focus.
