That's incredibly sharp for 1/320th at 840mm, Jan. Just out of interest, do you use a remote shutter release? Even with my 7D2 + 100-400 mk2 @ 560mm I'll get motion blur if I trigger the shutter manually (but my tripod is only of medium weight due to health issues).

I´ll never use a remote shutter release.
This picture was taken on my 5 series gitzo tripod.

With the 1dx i could with this shutterspeed , get the same sharpness even handhold.
With the 5d IV almost every picture would be soft when handholding.

That is such a beautiful image. The lighting, the super sharpness, the great colors, the wonderful background, and the excellent composition, put that photo over the top!!

I am pretty sure you have a big box of animals that you stash away until you need them for a photo.
