Superb detail, and sharpness on this fine close-up shot, Peter.

What a nice, hard to get portrait of the belted kingfisher, Doc. Very detailed and sharp.

Thanks Mike. I was driving past our local rail yard and was surprised to find this kingfisher, with all the noise and general hubbub, perched on a wire over a polluted water hole and even more surprised that when I stopped he didn’t fly. He posed for me for about a minute before he tired of the game and flew off. :-)

Interesting, Doc. I'm surprised he was willing to pose for you, especially when stopping your vehicle.

I stacked 1.4x and 2.0x on this image just trying it out since the Falcon is very still and quite a distance.
