I am trying the in camera stacking mostly to make getting focus easier than bracketing where you must focus on the nearest part of the subject.

Where does the in-camera stacking focus? I have never been clear. Should one focus on the middle point or the closest? I assume it worked like focus bracketing, but you suggest it is different? Thanks.

Addendum (RTFM): I see the manual says "The camera takes a series of shots at focus distances both in front of and behind the current focus position and creates a single image from the areas that are in focus in each shot."

Here is a link but I have just read the first two postings. Maybe it has some helpful information and not just some opinions.

If you are STACKING in-camera, focus on the center of the field. The camera will take shots from the nearest point to the farthest over the distance interval selected. If you are just BRACKETING, focus on the nearest point. The camera will then focus sequentially from that point to the distant end of the bracket.

I thought the manual was pretty clear about the difference.

Thanks, Robert, and yes, ISO 20,000 is correct. Edited the post to show EXIF. Expose to the right, fill the frame, and fire up DeNoise 😁

I think you have a Western Kingbird there.

Check out the Cassin's Kingbird below in the "Compare with Similar Species" section. I believe this is a Cassin's Kingbird.

I was leaning toward a adult Say's Phoebe. But the Cassin's Kingbird looks like a match.

Waiting on my lens to get back from repair (no fault of Olympus, long story...) honestly can't wait to have it back. Distance makes the heart grow fonder I guess,
