That is pretty impressive! Looks to be as sharp as a pin. 150mm -5000mm lens sounds to be a bit of a handful. You do not say if it is hand held or on a monopod?
If I may suggest it cropping the left hand side and bottom would place much more emphasis on the Robin.

Only 150-500mm, Bob! This was hand-held, as almost all of my shots tend to be. There isn't much to crop at the bottom, because the robin's toes are fairly low in the frame, and I like to retain some foliage to provide a bit of context. That's just a personal thing, though.

Ta to all for the positive feedback.

Love it, Well framed, Great light. I'm thinking of buying a sigma 150-500, how do you find yours in low light conditions? i'm yat to see a picture on a cloudy day so wasn't sure what the quality was like. Tarryn
