some excellent detail although personally i would not have taken this one - you will likely find that as you do more of a similar subject you will become more criticial and will not pick up the camera when the subject is on it's pod or within it's shelter.

if you have no issue with the environment but perhaps find the white area of the shelter distracting then try using quite heavy negative exposure compensation and very very low-powered fill-in flash, IF your subject to background distance is great enough you can achieve a dark background and the correc exposure of the subject.

A beautiful sharp image. great shot
Thanks for the feedback, it is something I will use for the future.
As it happens on this occasion I had no flash with me anyway and the weather had turned poor for the actual flying displays, so I tried to get the best I could from the birds on their perches.

Like the details in the feather here, the colours make it stand out in the thumbnails

Very powerful image, high detail of the feathers and can even make out the clouds reflecting in his eye.

Wonderful job!

The perch is not a problem if you are really interested in the bird and all his detail.
He's comfortable with it so then am I. This is a beautiful and detailed image The bird is interested in something to his left and that adds to this well composed image. I don,t see any heavy straps around his ankles so the image is top notch in my view. TG
