Daniel,

I see that, like myself, you are trying out Mark's suggestion. Nice shot but is that lens flare just up left of the bird's eye? It looks a little washed out and unsharp just where the beak meets with the head and then extends up over the eye. The built in lens hood on these tele lenses are rather short and may be allowing the sun to reach the lens surface. Interesting that there is a hint of colour noise in the out-of-focus background but the bird shows no such issues.

Great shot.

Ira
