Don't know how much has been trimmed off the RHS, but if there was some, then it could have been left in and reduced the cropGrin

I'm dead jealous as I've been trying to photograph one with my 100-400 for some time and failed miserably. Well done!

May be a heavy crop Alan but you have still shown him in some impressive detail. Excellent.
