Chimango caracara (Milvago chimango). This image is a good example of how the right shooting angle will completely blur an otherwise quite obtrusive background, in this case the crashing Atlantic waves. Photographed in Brazil using the EOS 7D and the lacklustre Sigma 150-500mm zoom lens. ISO160, 1/800 at f8. If this image had been shot at sunset, using a better lens, it wouldn’t have been half bad!
