Caption: Close-up of Yellowbilled Hornbill (Tockus flavirostris) using wide angle lens, Letaba Camp, Kruger National Park, South Africa.

Camera: Canon EOS 450D; Lens: Canon EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS; Focal Length: 18mm; Shutter speed: 1/160; Aperture: f/6.3; ISO:400.

The above picture was taken using a Hahnel wireless remote shutter release with the camera placed on the ground and lens set to its widest focal length to get a “bird’s eye view” of the hornbill.
