The shot isn't as sharp asI would like but clear enough to recognize it is a male.

Thanks for the compliment. I actually stumbled across a nest about a meter off the ground in a small bush. Apparently they like to live near water - swamps, ponds and rivers etc. The nest is close to a river in the city I live. I'll go back and try to get a few more shots. I wasn't pleased with the sharpness of my shots today.

Hi Jim - I see you posted this in the "techniques" forum asking for advice on sharpness - The place to ask that questionI should imagine is here on the wildlife forum. Norm and erics and others are VERY good at what they do, and are also extremely helpfull in giving advice and tips. Maybe re-post it on this forum with the same question ??? [sorry I can't help, I'm not quite "there" yet myself], also include quite a bit of detail about the shot, conditions, camera, lens post processing, what you had for breakfast, etc

:G:G:G
