CommentA number of these birds were digging for seed pods among decaying mulch, and after finding one they seemed to sit in the hole they had dug to eat it. Use of flash would limit shutter speed to 1/250sec plus light up background, however, I wanted to retain this dark, secretive atmosphere, so waited some time for a thin shaft of light to come through the trees to light up only the bird.
