Naked-faced Spiderhunter (Arachnothera clarae, a Philippine endemic) Photographed by William Lim at La Mesa Eco-Park, Quezon City, on December 24, 2010 Canon 1DM4, EF500 + 1.4X TC, 1/80, f6.3, ISO400 tripod
There are tons of excellent shots of this previously rarely photographed endemic bird posted recently, and it was tough to select which version is our FBPOTW.
This rendition was chosen in the end because of the very photogenic perch that curls around the subject, strengthening the composition. The pose is likewise very nice, presenting a classic profile of the bird, with fieldmarks very visible. Great detail, lovely colors, superb exposure and a pleasant background help push this capture into the realm of frameables.
