Very nice. The head/thorax/front part of the wings is very sharp. I am surprised the DOF was not deeper at f9 but I don't think it detracts from the image.

This is a terrific image! It certainly blends in with its surroundings.

It was at 450mm so even at F/9 there is not too much DOF. That is the only downside to the 150-450. That and it weighs nearly as much as an infant human!
