Beautiful image, Karl, as always. An excellent background, with those colours, certainly contributes to this photograph.

Karl, The bird has really terrific details. I seem to remember that you said somewhere that you wish the Z8 could focus on a subject without the subject and/or eye detection being used like your Canon camera. If that is correct, you could put one of the dynamic area focus modes on a button to select it. Dynamic area focus modes only focuses. It does not use subject or eye detection.

Very nice alert pose and details. Not sure, but maybe the highlights could come down a bit?
