Could have had a higher ISO to give me a higher aperture and better DOF, but we got it ... I think.

Astonishing image!!!!
Why would you want to change anything about the aperture?
The very slight softness in the wings accents a sense of motion, and it allows the eye to capture the viewer's eye!
Just about as perfect an image of flight could be, I think.
And the character of the bird stands right out!
A very unusual image and an extremely good one, in my opinion.

Thank you very much, Angky - your comments are very encouraging. I was shooting in burst mode, but only a short burst of about 3-5 pics. I was lucky in catching this wing position within that short burst.

I don't think you needed greater DOF. That is a great image. Beautiful feather detail.

You certainly made an image to be proud of . The only mistake would be to rest on your laurels !

Gosh - I thought the image turned out OK. Was reasonably happy with it. I am somewhat bemused by the level of approval shown here by you folk - thank you all!!

You don't get shots like that every day. I agree with everyone else. It is a wonderful image.

Peter, this is a fantastic capture! The unique position of the wings that envelop the Corella's head is what really stands out. I think the aperture setting was right on. At 450 mm you probably wouldn't have gained that much more depth of field without closing it way down, and the key is you nailed focus on the bird's head and eye.
