Again, uncropped, 45 minutes later. Here I have enough room to eek out a composition, but did DX do me any favors? I think not.
Edit: just in case the point is lost... download this image and crop it to a 4x5 landscape orientation for a 16x20 print size. Leave all the berries in (that's his habitat) but don't end up with the bird pushing the left side of the frame.
That's why I would rather have shot this FX. I have a great shot of a rare bird (in this state) that works in one and only one aspect ratio. Once this bird moves on I'll never have a shot at this again. This is almost worthless as an image unless I want to go to the expense of a totally custom frame job, or print it 20x30.
