This one doesn't appear to have been affected by noise Al. It appears to be crisp and sharp to me. Great capture and one I wold be proud of if it was mine.

Fantastic Alan. I was trying to get a shot of one of these this very day up at the Warburg Reserve near Henly. Saw plenty but nothing anywhere near as good as this. Top shot.
