Rufous-bellied Seedsnipe
« on: January 14, 2017, 01:24:05 AM »

Sometimes as a bird guide I get close views of amazing birds.  This Seedsnipe a difficult bird to see and we were very lucky to to have such an encounter at close range (15 meters).  I took a quick video with my 5D3 with 100-400 mm II and the marvelous crop_mo which put me in 3X zoom HD mode as soon as I engaged the video button.

Such a pretty bird! And super detail. Thanks for sharing.

What's happening with the head movement? Did you slow the footage down in post or something?

You are welcome!
Yes, I used twixter to slow it down but it cannot handle some of the fast head spinning very well.
