Thanks for your kind remarks.
I must say it was very difficult to frame this bird as it rarely sits still.I had left the up/ down control loosened to get the bird in focus. Using my tripod it's difficult to pan. But there are good tripod heads that makes it very easy. When i took this shot i was in a hide. That's how I could manage such close picture.
