|Tawny Frogmouth Podargus strigoides|
I didn't have to fix any red eyes and this is the original photo with only some noise reduction and levels modification.
Here is what I did:
I set my tripod, I opened the Internal Flash and set my external flash to Slave mode. I focused on the bird and moved left while holding the cable release with one hand and the flash on the other with roughly 2 meters away from the camera. Internal flash doesn't illuminate distances more than 5-6 meters but it triggers the external one using infrared.

You used a great technique to come to such a wonderful result. Very beautiful flashlight and colours. Fantastic sharpness and an excellent composition.

Wow! Amazing capture! Excellent work!
Selamlar Fatih bey,
Harika bir tür ve ilk kez görüyorum.
Türkiyede olmayan bir tür.
Mükemmel bir çalışma olmuş.

Stunning eyes on this bird! I like the little beetle on the brange.
a great portrait of this night bird. Frogmouth are not easy to discover and here you show us a very beautiful one taken in night time.
Hi Fatih - a great capture in the dark. Excellent sharpness. TFS
(have you taken it with the inbuilt 7D flash or have you used an external flash).
