    Damn... that's sharp for 550mm...
    Must be a nice lens. Looks like you know how to use it.

    Great shot!

    Very nice image, Eric. I have a bunch of BCNH images, but I've never seen a juvi. Did you use fill flash for this or is that natural light?

    Natural light, I prefer not to use flash on wildlife! Lighting was perfect near sunset and the background was completely in the shade giving a nice spot light effect on the bird.

    I agree. Great lighting and that "spotlight" effect made me wonder about fill (like with a Better Beamer). Nice work!
