R5, RF600f4, 2x, 1/2500s, f/10, ISO 1600, manual

Photographed locally, Kingfishers are pretty skittish around here but I was happy that that he chose a nice background for his image. :)

A fine image, Axel- they are certainly skittish from my experiences here in Ontario, as well.

Lovely portrait - I'm really impressed by the IQ at 1200mm!

Thanks, Sinuhe, the 2x RF extender is noticeably sharper than the EF version.
