A young buzzard (Buteo buteo) circling overhead in the Amsterdamse Waterleidingduinen reserve near the coast. Crop of original, a bit heavy-handed on the unsharp mask. Manual focus, shoulder stock, no shake reduction used.

Why no SR? Seems like it would have come in handy here!

Good question. It didn't work with my lens; I didn't get the "select focal length" menu when I switched it on, and the icon never appeared in the viewfinder. It took me a while to work out why, and eventually I realised it is because I use a remote cable switch, which according to the manual is incompatible with the SR function.
However, I installed the current firmware this week, and ever since it's been fine... I shot this one last night, a (Euro) Blackbird singing on my neighbour's roof.
