Fabulous BIFs! I notice that you nailed the focus on the eye of the Night Heron and the near wing is slightly OOF, due either to movement or DOF. Some complain about the size of the focus area of the K5, yet this seems to show that at least in the correct hands, it isn't a problem. Do you recall where you were focusing on the Heron? If I were taking this shot, my luck, or lack of skill, would have the wing and shoulder in focus and the eyes OOF!

Unfortunately I'm not even close to what you described. When fast moving bird flies across the only thing what I can do is keeping center point AF on the bird and follow it while shooting at 7fps continuously. I usually shoot bigger birds at f/7.1-f/8. This one was taken at f/6.3. And DOF was thinner, indeed.
