Behind The Lens

Location
I took this photo while i was in Ranganthittu Bird Sanctuary, India photographing juvenile pied Bushchat
Time
It was about Noon time
Lighting
It was semi overcast day, not my favorite as i don't have very fast lens, but i can always bump up the ISO
Equipment
I used Canon 7d, Canon 400mm 5.6L, Jobu Design Gimbal Head and Induro tripod
Inspiration
Birds always inspire me , big or small :) This was taken by chance !
Editing
I did some cropping of the photo and adjusted while balance along with sharpness as this was a RAW file
In my camera bag
Canon 7d, Canon 400mm 5.6L, 480ex II Flash, Better Beamer, flash bracket, flash remote cable, spare batteries and wired remote. Sometimes i squeeze in Tokina 11-16mm F2.8 along with Big Stopper filter for landscape/seascapes/waterfalls
Feedback
Well Be patient! and don't run behind birds, you may never know which bird might just show up on the prefect perch while you just waiting like this one... who just perched and left within seconds
