RED-BREASTED NUTHATCH, GREEN, MICHIGAN, OCTOBER 12, 2013
Pentax 55-300 at 300mm
1/400 sec. f7.1
It was late afternoon and growing dark, and I needed a reasonably fast shutter speed to capture a good portrait of this quicksilver snatch-and-grab artist. Raising the ISO to 3200 gave enough speed, and denoising the image later in Lightroom 5 yielded an acceptable result.
