Backstory: On this occasion I was shooting a Nikon D5500. It has a great Sony IMX sensor (no low pass filter) which was a godsend as at the time I was using a Nikon 55~300 lens. Great optics but very slow to focus. The sensor saved me – it grabbed enough detail that the shot works.

Locale: Bay Street, Peoples Republic of Stapleton

Equipment: Nikon D5500 / Nikon AF-S DX Nikkor 55-300mm f/4.5-5.6G ED VR
