Any pertinent technical details: This was taken with a Nikon D500 and a 2-500 Nikon lens, handheld, 1/2000th, f/7.1, ISO 1800, Focal length 420mm, cropped to 1232 x 952. I cruised by these little cuties in a tree on the shore of our local lake in Groveland, CA while hunting for Bald Eagles to shot. There must’ve been 30 of these birds on that tree branch.

Hi Dave. Excellent job nailing the focus on these two and your depth of field worked very well to get them both. If you’re into cleaning up images, I think this would be even better without the head of the third bird and the out of focus branches in the background. It would take a bit of work, but might be worth it.

The two head turns are great.
