Comment:I was not expecting a bird of this size to drop in so close while I was photographing bush birds at a water point. Consequently, the image is nearly full frame and the bird is a bit too big in the frame. I did think to close down the aperture to increase the depth of field. Unfortunately, much of the fine feather detail has been lost in the downsize for the BLP gallery but if I need a large print or 4k display, there is plenty to see in the hi-res image.

The brown head and neck indicates this is a female, sub-species chrysochlora.
Equipment:Canon 5Ds + 300 mm f/2.8 II + 2x III extender with 600EX-RT flash, hand-held.
Manual, partial metering, one shot spot AF, f/11, 1/200 sec, ISO 1000, ETTL flash.
Processed with DPP4 and PSE14 with Neat Image plug-in.
