That's wicked. Great sharpness around the eyes and beak.

This is very nice. Sharp, detailed, quite stunning.
You take take some really beautiful photos.

Incredibly nice close-up.

Thanks all! I'd love to say how hard of a shot this was and have a great story about going to great lengths to get it, but honestly, he was perched in a tree about 8 feet off the road on the auto-tour of the NWR, and the biggest hardship was leaning across my passenger seat to shoot out of the opposite window of my truck ;-)a

Are you looking at me? Frilly lizard, Chlamydosaurus kingii, warming itself on a wet season morning.

I'm not up to that, but know full well how others do.
If you've ever seen surveyors in action with a prism on a pole, the pole MUST be rock steady.
I once had a young lady on a job that smoked, something.
She'd hold the fag in her hand and it would jitter back and forwards at violent rates.
Clamp the prism pole and it was rocklike grip like I've never seen again. Phenomenal.
I take my hat off to those with acquired skills to handhold these cameras.
