As I was photographing the water plants I encountered this nesting yellow-billed cardinal.

As you can see it’s panting in the hot evening sun and naturally it was reluctant to move away from the eggs, even though I got quite close before I noticed it.

It sounds like this:

  • Aperture: ƒ/7.1
  • Camera: NIKON D4
  • Focal length: 700mm
  • ISO: 1250
  • Shutter speed: 1/1250 s
