    After my previous poor effort I had a closer look at the shots that I took in heavy shade and oblique sunlight where I first saw this bird.
    Still a big crop and some softness but at least it shows it off better.

    Super cool bird, but the IQ just doesn't hold up, particularly with the side lighting. It's a shame there isn't more detail/sharpness on the bird because the background is fantastic.

    Sweet bird and BG. Lighting was tough with the side light. What is your workflow like / how big is a big crop? Just wondering if there are some tweaks folks could suggest. TFS
