the only shooting I did of this was with my camera , before anyone thinks I killed it , amazing how much wildlife there is within such short distance from my home or town for that matter , and I not mean the local drunks , druggies , thieves or thugs there's plenty of them in most towns these days in fact too many of them ,

Well spotted Gwynn.
Once again a faster shutter speed and a tripod would help with sharpness.
I find my 70-300mm lens very hard to focus well with even on a tripod!

Great capture and POV. Watch the shutter speed on these wildlife images to get a good sharp result, you can't rely on VR with a moving subject. If hand holding with fairly steady hands, you need a minimum shutter speed of 1/ (focal length x crop factor). If this was at 300mm and your camera has a 1.5x crop factor, this means 1/ (300 x 1.5) i.e. 1/450 second. Practically that means 1/500 of a second. I would however consider going faster still given subject movement and to allow for any further cropping in editing. I am generally happy to boost ISO up to 800 or 1000 to achieve this; a slightly noisy image is better than an unsharp one and your camera is pretty good at low noise at high ISO.
