The original raw files for the images are available as a zip.
I shot this using
Camera: Canon EOS-1D Mark IV
Exposure: 0.001 sec (1/2000)
Focal Length: 280 mm
ISO Speed: 400
Exposure Bias: -1 EV
Although it does not have a lot of noise, it has more than I expected at ISO 400 with the 1D4. Am I expecting too much from the camera?
I ran it through Define and did some basic LR adjustments. It looks better here (at least I think so).
I guess I should apply some more sharpening to the upper wing tips?
