    Default Stripe-throated Bulbul (Thailand)

    Stripe-throated Bulbul is common throughout Thailand and was observed at all elevations I visited. This individual
    was photographed at a deep forest hide outside Kaeng Krachan in Pretchaburi Province in the central part of the
    country, southwest of Bangkok.

    Going to f/5.6 and 1/60 yielded some nice DOF gain versus my other shots at f/4 and 1/100. 1/60 is f'ing tough though,
    even with a tripod.

    Happy with the dorsal perspective but would have like to see more foot/feet!

    Canon 600mm f/4 IS II on EOS 1DX2
    1/60 at f/5.6, ISO 3200
    Processed in LR CC. Strong NR on background, cloned out a few poops on the perch (and yeah, you've seen it before)

    Another wonderful shot for your collection and under quite difficult conditions. Excellent sharpness and BG.
    There certainly are a lot of Bulbuls across Asia and India.

    Neat looking bird really digging those colors. Like the framing and background. You could have upped the ISO here to 6400 for a little more shutter speed.

    I think you did quite well at 1/60. I would probably have done the same as you and kept the ISO at 3200. You managed nice detail, considering the circumstances. Was this ETTR, or under exposed.

    I think this bird looks about as good as any you have posted from this trip. Feathers
    around face are great. Perch is what it is, BG very nice.

    Nice rich colors in this frame and I like the BG. Detail looks good especially on the back. Nice pose from the bird. TFS

    This is a very eye-catching shot! I love the specular highlights in the BG. Details look fantastic, especially considering the SS. Lovely colors and comp. This is a winner, Dorian!
