Hard to fault really - most people would be very pleased with this shot - well composed, excellent detail, unusual image from above the bird, great timing, good depth-of-field, great close-up, clear and in-focus - maybe the wing is a smidgen tight to the border - but well done I'd say. Nice camera Smile

Great shot John. I agree with David. Only niggles I can think of are closeness to the border, as David has mentioned, plus is the very tip of the bill going out of focus?

Best wishes

Thanks all, very encouraging and welcome comments.
The tight crop was because of a boat coming in on the left. I probably should have dealt with the boat in photoshop.

Cathy, I examined the bill on the original and I agree, it does look out of focus.
Do'nt know how that can be when the eye looks ok. Could the centre of focus have been on the far wing and the bill is just a little forward ?.
