I love the expression on this fella's face. It took a fair number of shots before I managed to take what I wanted, which is him "looking down his nose"straight at me- The challenge was to get the bill AND face in focus, due to the long bill and close proximity. Using F14 did the job well, and the Canon 100-400 IS did the rest with the Image Stabiliser [handheld]
