Beauty, pin sharp, F8 looks to be sweet on that lens. I used to have a 150-500, it was good too, if the light was right, but in this country that wasn't too often!

I like this shot more than the previous one you posted.

I know what you mean David. The light was good/bad due to the passing clouds and rain. Tried to go f8 as much as I could without sacrificing speed. The lens is ok at f5.6 but you have to know what type of shots you can go for. Close ups wide open show the edges up a bit.

Thanks Stan and Maria

Terrific shot. The light effects vary so much with Kingfishers. My 150-500 can be good as well. It's nothing like as bad as some reviews say or those with the 5k lenses like to think!

you get used to it Dave. Like everything, you need to know how to work it and what it's strenghs and weaknesses are i suppose.

The Kingfishers colours, I believe, are dependent on light as they're naturally dull. A bit like Starlings. Interesting to watch them as the light changed.
