This is an amazing close up shot! well done.
I'm amazed -tough- by so many rings that poor bird have to carry... researchers should always walk on the shoes of the researched to try understanding and respecting the subject...
Thanks for your nice comments on my Indian Roller photo.
1- Yes, 100% of my photos are mine and copyrighted
2- I have a Nikon D70s and normally carry all over a Tokina 80-400mm lens... easy and light combo.
Cheers! Alex Don Gato!
