Nice and sharp Did you have to do any sharpening via Photoshop or similar?

I've been thinking about this one for a while for an airshow lens...

I've been thinking about this one for a while for an airshow lens...

It didn't need sharpening and it looked odd sharpened in PS. I did run the 800wide pic though Focus Magic which just tweaked it slightly, but for my own use I wouldn't bother sharpening it. I didn't use noise reduction either.
Very friendly little bird, likes to pose
