  1. Great shot! Colours are real nice here. Looks like the focus is a little off to the far wing of the bird though. Where did you take this shot? It does underline the comments in your topic on HD.

    Great shot nevertheless!!

    1. This was taken in the Pantanal, Brazil. Indeed it is not focused very well. Partly because it is a moving target hand-shot with a very heave lenze (Sigma 150-500mm) when the sun was setting, and partly because I'm really only a beginning photographer :) Posted 8 years ago, modified 8 years ago
