Caracara Head Tilt

It’s always very cool to see how far Caracaras can bend their head back.  There are times that it’s a challenge to move my head side to side, let alone try this one.  Very flexible raptor.

Used negative exposure compensation to keep from blowing out the whites in his neck.

Taken with Canon 1DX and Canon 500mm F4 IS II mounted on tripod with Wimberley II gimbal head

Aperture priority, 1/2500 sec @ F9, ISO 800, evaluative metering, -2/3 exposure compensation, 500mm
