The wet season in South East Brazil runs from November to March. In the atlantic forest, the rain is almost permanent. Sometimes, however, it is possibly to use this critical photography condition as an advantage.

This photo was taken on a cloudy day, under a thin rain in the forest of Ubatuba, Brasil . The small drops on the black head of the bird, were emphasized firing a flash set at 1/32 (low level output) just enough to reach the bird

D300 Nikon 80-400 mm f 6 1/250 ISO 500 manual flash 1/32 Monopod.

Jose Garcia, welcome to our blog – this is a completely new species for me – the soft lighting does enhance the image and bring out the contrast to good advantage.
