"V1 w/105VR Handheld - bird shot"

The below image was with the V1 and my 105VR through a window...handheld. I have to admit that although not as good as the 'real' bird photographers here in the Nikonians, I am getting better bird shots with the V1 than I ever got with the D800...and I think it's the advantage of V1 'reach' over D800 'crop'. At least that the only thing that has really changed.

Nice little white crowned sparrow! As they say, you can never get enough reach and getting more pixels in the right place is very helpful.

Thanks Neil,

It's still not that "perfect" shot or as good as Eric and others have in their gallerys, but I have had a very hard time getting small birds with the feather detail that I like to see. I have a few shots I like but not many. The V1 is getting me closer to where I want to be...in more ways than one.
