Llamedos are you aware of the multi quote option? MQ
Not suggesting you must or should use, just wasn't sure if you were aware of this feature.
I find it very useful, and you can MQ across different pages.

Regards

Wonderful shot though.

What was the downside with the EOS R?

The biggest downside to using this camera on this trip was me!! It was new to me and although I thought I had the hang of it when it came to using it in anger I was too slow to change settings so I quickly switched back to my trusty 1DX mk2.Having said that it is no match for the 1DX mk 2 when it comes to frame rate and tracking of the subject but at around 1/3 of the price you would not expect it to be. I am sure that when I am used to the camera it will be fine, for now it is a good back up. I also shoot landscapes and this will become my primary camera for that, I like the articulating screen and the live histogram in the viewfinder.

Belted Kingfisher

Beautiful composition.
Love the detail, right down to the water droplet.
A very appealing photo, one I'd frame and hang.

Lovely colours, beautiful bird. A peaceful scene.

Pondrader wrote in post #18762050 (external link)

A quirky little bird beautifully presented.
Very endearing.

Love this. Detail, pose and overall composition.
They look as though they'd melt into the surroundings.
Very nice.
