The cloud cover and intermittent rain--not to mention the lush foliage all around--made for poor photography conditions... and to make matters worse, John left his monopod at home. Still, by bracing his carmera against a tree limb, cranking the ISO up, and the benefits of IS and firing off several frames in a row produced this usable photograph. The noise in the photo is fairly high, and the bird's own motion blurred the image somewhat.
