      Great shot SimonSharp where it should be and movement where it is acceptable. Well done sir!You obviously were not at the 800 end of the zoom range or you would not have managed it with f/7.1.Personally I would have upped the shutter for such fast moving subjects, but then I would not have been able to get this shot. Well done!!

      Jas - thanks for nice comment. Focal length was set to 501mm....guess that extra 1mm made all the difference.
