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. 1.
