ABSOLUTELY STUNNING alright, so maybe i have a NEW favorite of today. Also a logical desire for a 600 MM f/4 II!! :0) Now THIS is the way to photograph birds..i am in love

Hello Peter,
beautiful species, very well captured, with nice composition and colors.
OK, you have the right camera and lens, but it's not enough without very good eye.
