Captured during a freezing afternoon (yesterday actually) with my workhorse of a camera, Canon 5D mkII with the 100-400mm L series zoom. The light was weak so I used a monopod to keep the camera steady while using a low shutter speed.

For the photogeeks here are the settings:

Camera Canon EOS 5D Mark II
Exposure 0.025 sec (1/40)
Aperture f/5.6
Focal Length 400 mm
ISO Speed 1600

The image was then cropped and adjusted in Aperture 3.

The moral of the story? The 0.025 seconds it took to capture this beautiful creature in camera was only possible as result of spending hours in the cold and quite some time in front of the computer.
