This is always a really tricky species to compose for. I was happy with the way this one turned out.

What a stunning species eh?

Beautiful, Glenn.

Does the sharpness of the tail have to do with it falling out of the focal plane, or is it a softness of the edge of the lens you are using?

I don't think it detracts from the image at all, but I am just curious.

It is almost certainly the DOF @ 700 mm and not an edge fall off issue.
Movement of the tail is also possible - the shutter speed was only 1/100s - unbelievably slow for the quality of the image IS notwithstanding!
I own this lens and the 1.4 tele-extender - this is some of the best glass one can buy.

It is a DOF issue. Shooting wide open with that much lens you have a very shallow DOF (especially when very close to the subject).

Cheers!
