Great detail with clearly printed the lens depth of field down on the ground.
This photo could be used in expert lens reviews to show exactly the effects of F8 aperture on Super telephoto of 500mm .

By the way ... what lens is that one on your gorgeous D810 ?
500mmm f4 ? Other info ?

In any case you made the best combination of shutter speed and f8 aperture to achieve maximum from what you can achieve . It seems that there was no need for more depth of field since the bird is clear from top to bottom .

Very goid one .
