    Default Srilankan Frogmouth | Thattekad

    The nightcrawler of the evergreen woods, the enigma of the forest, the most unique of them all, meet the Srilankan Frogmouth. If not for an experienced guide, it is near impossible to sight these birds. This was shot in Thattekad, Kerala.

    The one facing the lens is the female and the one with the back showing is the male. One usually sights them in pairs. When the leaves move, the birds move in a similar pattern to avoid detection. Their camouflage is mindboggling.

    On a different note, I am in love with the 5D Mark III's low light capabilities. This image was shot handheld at ISO 6400.

    Canon EOS 5D Mark III, Canon EF 300mm f/4 L IS USM + 1.4x II Extender
    EXIF: 1/80 | f/5.6 | ISO 6400

    Full Frame image. Comments and critiques welcome.

    Nice image. I like the eye contact. 6400 is still a bit more, nevertheless due to the low light it is not possible to get a good shot without it. Moving slightly more to the right would have helped in avoiding that bright patch on the right. Thanks for sharing.

    Cheers,
