What a beautiful clear photo. I love how the feathers have so much detail. It looks like he has been raiding a grape jelly feeder. LOL

Rocky he was about 4 meters away. I was using a Canon 400 5.6. Of course I cropped the image but I think the detail held up better with the 7D ll than it would have with the 7D.
