Beautiful avian capture, fine colors and details.
Looks a bit different than the ones we have in Egypt.

#6 rafal_antoniuk: Hi, Rafal, the 500 mm is of course superior to the 100-400 at 400 mm ; but the 500 mm is just to big and heavy to carry around in the bush in tropical temperatures; I also prefer to use the 100-400 when on safari : much easier to work on larger mammals like f.e. elephants,
