    Went driving into work today and spotted this Royal Bird looking for food in a stream down below.:biggrin: A little noisy, but I am going to work on that when I have time. Sun was very bright. I'm looking for ways to improve sharpness. These were about 25 yards away, handheld in my car so I can't complain too much.:biggrin:

    CC welcome.

    As soon as I put my camera down, it took off and dove for some minnows then flew off down stream. Glad I witnessed it :biggrin:.
