Roseate Spoonbill, D500, 500mm PF, 1/2500, f/7.1, ISO 800
ISO was a little higher than I would have preferred but was watching birds feeding in the shadows of the bayou. This one jumped up quickly while being chased away by another Spoonbill. Image doesn't seem to be totally focused. Maybe should have gone to f9 or so to get more of the bird focused?

Thanks. I would have liked to have gotten a little more space but he flew in front of me quite quickly and I couldn't easily back up.
Edit: Opps, I'm kind of a bonehead at times. I can add some space in post. LOL

btw the eye is sharp and I doubt f/9 would have enough been enough DOF for the rest of the bird. I would have also tried some shots at f/5.6 and 1/3200 if the ISO was under 800. I've found that's a safe speed for flight shots.

Nice photo. I'd push the highlights a bit in Lightroom, That would brighten the background.
