    I love how the light was low in the sky. It gives more depth to the feathers. I like the DOF and background too. Not too distracting but gives it placement. Just my 2 cents though. I'm still a newbie.

    Dan, nice sharp image, but the thing for me when I do bird photography that close, I want to be able to see the eyes; I want them to be in focus and I hope that I can get a catchlight in the eye(s) as well. Here, I cannot see them, so I cannot tell if they are in focus, nor can I see a catchlight.

    Hey Western,

    For sure. I saw this as well, but this shot came out sooooo sharp, I just had to process it. I used my canon 70-200 F/4L. This lens is my workhorse for stuff like this. It's such a great lens.

    Thanks,
    Danny
