11/15/2010: Buff-belly

One of the more exotic of the North American hummingbirds…the Buff-bellied, is only found in far south Texas, with very occasional excursions out along the Gulf coast. This was taken on a dark, cloudy Texas day…in full sun it will knock your eye out!

Buff-bellied Hummingbird, Estero Llano Grande TX, Digiscoped, DiaScope 65FL

Digiscoped with the Canon SD4000IS behind the 15-56x Vario Eyepiece of the ZEISS DiaScope 65FL. Equivalent focal length (field of view) of about 3000mm, 1/100 sec. @ ISO 800 (not much light!).

Processed in Lightroom with a combination of Fill Light, Blackpoint right, Clarity, a touch of Vibrance and Sharpen narrow edges preset.
