From another discussion on the same photo:

Fantastic image, Pam!!! I like the position of the bird and the splash of the water. You got the timing just perfect here! -Sharon D. #261728

Your timing and focus, are impeccable, Pamela. Tell me, are you shooting on a tripod or a monopod? And, if so, which one?

A friends daughter wants to shoot wildlife, and I keep promoting tripods for added sharpness, reduced movement, not to mention protection from danger. Any advice could certainly help her.

Thanks for sharing. #1795078

Unavailable EXIF: If there is no other information but 'Unavailable' in the EXIF (meaning no EXIF data exists with the photo), the 'Unavailable' blurb is not displayed. If there is any info, it shows. Many photos have the EXIF stripped out when people modify the image and resave it, before uploading.
