For my final entry of photos from our trip to Mexico, I have for you today a hooded oriole. The colour on these birds was brilliant, we just don’t get to see birds this colourful at home. I was able to get nice and close to this guy as he was hopping around feeding from the flowers. He stood still just long enough for me to get the correct focus and a nice composition. I suspect action shots are what really sell, but I feel like this is the closest I’ve come to something that might be worthy of getting in a magazine such as (dare I say) National Geographic.
Camera: Canon EOS 60D, Exposure Time: 1/640, Aperture: f/5.6, ISO: 1000, Focal Length: 400mm
