Jrista, Jack and serendipity
That image was not entered into a competition but merely presented to a website that takes 800x600 reduced size images, on which I have many. Two weeks ago I got within 6 metres of a kingfisher and got several shots where you can see every feather.  Here is a close up of a head, cropped from the full image.

Very nice close-up.  8)

A few shots of some wild ducks in the drainage ditch next to my house using my just purchased 5D3 (which I don't know how to use yet ;D). 100-400mmL @400, f/8 handheld.

Hey serendipidy my friend, congrats on your new acquisition.  :)  Keep practicing, you're doing good.

Congratulations on your new acquisition. You are going to be able to shoot at higher ISO than you were used to. It is a lovely toy!

Thanks for posting these nice shots.  You have your work cut out learning the camera.  I have had mine over a year and am still learning

Click, rpt, and Scott...thanks. With just a hundred shots, I can already tell it's better than my 7D.

Great photos! I'd hate to be a bee. What lens and distance to get those incredibly sharp shots?

Brazilian cardinal takes a leak on my neighbors aluminum fence post, hops down, and then demands a bread handout :)
