Thanks for commenting. Actually if only I had Tamron 70-200mm or Tom's Pentax 80-200mm, I would have the whole bird and the splashing scene all in a frame. Instead I did cut off part of the subject to accommodate the latter.
I had nowhere to back into (for zooming out) with my fixed 200mm. This is the whole subject minus the interesting part though
In this case, seems that a zoom wins
p.s. edited in later
I did not post this one as it seemed that it was blurry. It is to an extent. But actually the bird was swinging so much so that its head was kind of twisted up.
