David, Cristobal, many thanks.
Superb shot, with a challenging subject. Great DoF.
This fella looks a lot bigger than the species we get in my neck of the woods.
Very nice capture.
Thanks, Gato. This sort of shot is a mix of practice, luck and shooting a lot of frames.
It wasn't an unusually large bird. I think that impression is created by the fairly small flower the bird was approaching.
