WOW WOW WOW. Paul, you had this beauty in your portfolio for two years and had robbed us of the pleasure of viewing it all this time, until now? Tut-tut, I am apalled Paul . How could you?

What a great capture . Absolutely fantastic.
The colours, the fish captured, the sharpness, everything is to the T here.
The whole image is just wonderful, but the highlights for me that just leaves me mesmerised are the eye and the beak. Those colours just enhance the whole image.

Please dig in more in your files, and bring them all out . If you had this one who knows what other lovely beauties you might have in there, come on, bring them on

The longest I have now is the Sigma 120-400mm HSM.
Now this is another beautiful lens and I have some great results from it.

I do miss the length of the 170-500mm but I had to weigh up the pros and cons for my business, unfortunately I had to sell one to make room for the 120-400mm.
