Good light and composition. Do you do any sharpening in PP?

probably 3 out of 4 times I will apply some sharpening in LR most usually I find it necessary when I have applied some noise reduction.

The re-posted version looks a tad sharper to me.

wasn't though. just different enlargements. Notice that in that photo to see the DOF you look at the limbs in front, and the limb in back. It will be apparent that the bird is pretty much the center of focus, so the eye, the feathers the leg are all in the same DOF. Secondly notice just how far away it is to be that small @800+mm. You really cannot focus just on a tiny eyeball at those distances,,,you use the whole body usually.

That lens is rather finely tuned (I had a lot of time one day) and so went through the factory recommended procedure. Didn't take much, at any focal length. Note also that although I did not mention it, but the 1/1ooth sec exposure @ 800+mm, should have given it away....a tripod was used, as well as delayed shutter. As for sharpening, I try and use just up to the edge of reality without going over even a smidge. So sometimes when posting to web the various sites 'play' a little. THis site very little, but say something like FB is horrendous.
