What Am I doing Wrong? (img)

Took this this morning on our Town Lagoon.

The hawk was hanging around for quite a while and out of the 8 shots I took of it, this one was supposed to be the pick, until I got home and viewed it on my monitor.

I've been wondering for quite a while why some of my shots come out muddy looking, maybe someone can help here hopefully.

The only explanation I can think of is the tropical heat where I live plus I always have the camera in my hands that adds to the heat (no neck strap).

Specs for the shot are - 717 - ISO 100 - f8 - 1/640s - Oly B300 - Manual W/B using Expo Disc - Focal Length 48.5mm - Pattern Metering Mode.

No editing except for cropping has been done.
