We were walking in the park when we heard the call of the ground thrush. We spent some time to get the visual of the bird. Once we had it locked in our view, I removed the equipment from the tripod and approached it slowly hand holding the lens/camera. I shot in continuous mode to capture it calling. Once I got some decent shots, I approached it closely and made some more images.
