This fella obligingly sat on a branch and let our boat get within about 10 metres.

Due to being in a shaded area I had to push the iso up to 1600. Was pleased that the IS allowed me to hand hold at 1/160 without camera shake.

Taken on the Daintree River in Queensland, Australia.

Comments and crits welcome.

Thanks for looking.

Wow those colours in the plumage are amazing, he makes his UK cousin appear dull in comparison!
