Yellow-Crowned Night Heron

Yellow-Crowned Night Heron

For these close ups I backpacked in the Nikon 800mm f5.6 autofocus lens with its dedicated 1.25 x converter to get even closer. With the camera having a 50% crop itself, I was using a 1500mm focal length, in effect. No crop was used in post capture as I was around 15 feet from the very patient bird, the session lasting around an hour.
