A fine capture Sam, looking at the whites it looks like you could have done with some minus exp comp here as it's slightly over exposed, with birds and animals that have white always try to under expose slightly to prevent burn out, don't mean to be unkind and have mentioned it so that you will bear that in mind with future shots, other than that very well done,
Geoff.
