Ruddy Darters have started to appear. I spent quite a time shooting these until I got a head and tail in focus (R5 at 500m). And a crop of it more looking at me.

Really nice ones, Alan. Looking at the detail of the compound eye I think I know what I'll do if I have some 4.500 € to spend ;)

Here are my darters from the weekend.

1:1 crop of the head. I think the 5D4 AF didn't 100% nail it but im fine with it for a 100-400LII iwth TC.

You'll get just as sharp with a 5DSR as with an R5.
