Another great shot but just falls short of your first upload Peter.
A bit tight on the left for me and is that noise or sharpening artefacts in the eye, or indeed did you catch it mid blink I wonder

Some issues with this shot unfortunately, not sure if it may have been a large crop or something else.
But quite a photogenic bird, with the head-crest, and the colours in the feathers.

I like it. Shame the very tip of his head=crest

Nice image except for the plumage being clipped

I'm sorry but I have to agree with the above comments on this one Peter.

You're spoilt us with the earlier upload. This one does not have the same impact, I'm afraid. As usual with animal/bird shots I go straight to the eyes and these don;t look so good. I'm wondering just how much you've cropped as the detail seems less distinct than before.

Thanks everyone, I had edited 3 or 4 images of the Crane and have uploaded the wrong one
but to be honest the other versions are not much better so not worth a re post, I was just jealous of the hair style, reminds me of the 80's ann Limahl from Kagagoogoo

As with George's comment I have to agree about the tight LHS. I would like to see the eye no further left than central to bring in space for the crane to move into as it were. Why is the crest blurred? Too low shutter speed or to large an aperture, neither is shown so I cannot tell? the differential focusing has worked well otherwise. Nice shot otherwise Peter.

Sorry I'm late on this Peter. Agree with Frank, that the hairstyle was slightly blurry - it looks very delicate though, and the Crane looks a bit Nuts
and I suspect it wasn't that still perhaps? Think it's a great pic though .. (Kagagoogoo) !!
