Red-tailed Tropicbird

Red-tailed Tropicbird

Kilauea Point NWR, Kauai, Hawaii, USA. 2 August 2006
EOS 350D & 400mmf5.6. 1/3200 sec f5.6 ISO 400

This is one of my earliest memorable DSLR pics, and a suitably exotic reminder of our family holiday to this extreme long haul destination. I took several other tropicbird pics on that trip, but this is against a dark background which creates more contrast than those with sea background.
