American Pygmy Kingfisher - Costa Rica - February, 2019

Of all the wonderful birds we saw in Costa Rica, this was my favorite. In a addition to the challenge of spotting it, low light in the mangroves required that I shoot the bird with the camera's ISO set at 16000!

This photo was taken with a Canon 7D Mark ii Digital Camera with a 100-400mm zoom lens.
