amazing photo, simply fantastic! was it hard to get this shot?!?
Thanks! I spent a lot of time with this bird over a period of weeks ( approx 10 hours per week) , a good camera and fast lens, patience, exposure compensation and more work than i like in post processing. And then there is dumb luck because I only got one chance at a burst of shots here and that was it…a few came out sharp and a few did not.
