    Here is the same individual as my last post, but a view of the feet for those who prefer to see them :-) This guy sure responded to audio quite well. After a few minutes it was time to leave it alone...

    Canon 7DII + 500mm f/4 II + 1.4TC III, manual exposure, evaluative metering, 1/640s., f/5.6, ISO 1600, natural light, handheld, small crop right and bottom, removed a darker OOF pebble in the FG.

    Cmon, man, tell me where you rent the trained rails. Another stunner. On this one, since tip toes make it more interesting, I wish for more DOF for the legs and feet. Looks like you were close enough (amazingly) to afford it and keep that dreamy BG. TFS

    Outstanding POV, plus the fun pose makes him look even taller.

    Nice match of birds colors to bg. Soft background.

    Excellent.

    Amazing that you've made an up-close-and-personal portrait of what is normally a hard-to-get bird. Lovely.

    I think i like this one more than the other. The low angle is great. Love the alert pose. The vertical composition is very nice.

    Very Nice Point of View.

    I like the details on the bird and overall colors.

    Love it.

    Just beautiful Dan, a classic Cadiuex with the lovely tones and low shooting angle. Another winner
