    1. This is great Isak. Possibly f8.0 would have been a little better, but the detail here is superb !!! If you can remember ... where did you find this guy ?? Great stuff.

      Thanks Vic!

      It was on the Biyamiti loop in Kruger (S23).

      Vic, I agree with you that f8 would have helped to put the "front" feathers also in focus, but the problem was that the grass in the background was very close. I opted for the OOF BG, sacrificing some focus on the front of the bird.
