After a 6 hour trudge around long valley I was aout to get back to my car for a long awaited drink when I spotted this chap darting about. I noticed that he kept alighting on this stick so, remember this was the day I forgot my tripod, I tried to get my beathing stable and slow. The snipers amongst you will know the technique used.

Well I braced myself and waited, and waited, and waited. Eventually the little blighter obliged and I got the shot. Well several actually. I posted this one as the top wing allowed you a better view his top leg.

I hadn't realised they were so furry along the body. Anyway please enjoy and feel free to comment.

Super shot with great detail. Amazing for handheld with that 50-500 but then I saw the specs... ISO 1600, D3. Lucky you had that in the bag! Smile

Imagine how good this would have been if you had a proper camera (only kidding, I'd love to own one) A superb shot especially with the 50-500.
