I never know what you'll put up next, it is always so different, but still of the highest quality. This type of stretch is so familiar, but I rarely see it in bird shots.

This is so far beyond anything I will likely ever do, that I went over it with a fine toothcomb using a pixel loupe. It is even remarkable at that level. Only one thing, there are some strange pixels in brown between the first and second tailfeathers to the right of the spiked feather.
