    Nice pic,the water drop adds too.
    As you say about the light.. perhaps a bit more detail over the body feathers would be gained with the earlier light.

    Cheers John, yea it was a really soft light and shooting at 840mm ie 600 lens plus 1.4tc made it a "soft"picture, half an hour earlier would have given it detail. but sometimes its interesting to have something different

    Beautiful shot. The softness says a lot about the tranquility of that time of day. Well done

    The 1.4 helps but also "doesnt" help if you get my drift as it buggers your f stops up light wise.
    I get the light problem trying to get sambar pics at either end of the day.
    My reasoning is if you keep taking enough pics we eventually get a good one.
    Perhaps the 600 without the 1.4 may have just given you the edge at that time of day..keep posting them as I like your pics too.
