Bird: Plain Prinia
In this particular frame, I found this Plain Prinia in the reeds, bathing in the beautiful morning sunlight. It was trying to gather nesting material to build its nest.
Aware about the fact that Prinia’s are small and swift birds, I knew I will have a hard time to get the perfect frame I wanted. A long wait ensued, and after countless minutes I was able to get what I was looking for. The challenge was to maintain consistent focus, on a small, but fast moving bird, without disturbing this little fella, since the bird was collecting nesting materials, while hand-holding this heavy lens in humid conditions for over two hours.
I use Canon EOS 7D, along with Canon EF 70-200 F4L, Canon EF100-400 F4.5-5.6L IS, Canon EF 100mmL IS Macro to shoot all my work.
