Well what a day we had yesterday down on the Somerset Levels. We got down there nice and early which was a really good move as the whole place was alive with insects, especially as I went for the Dragonflies. However as the morning went on and it got warmer the dragons became more and more active and the only way to get near them was with the long lenses.
The good thing about having the long lens on is that there's always a chance shot of nailing one of the many rare birds that frequent the area as was the case with this image of a Bittern which flew overhead. Bit of a grab shot admittedly, but I just love how the morning light which was very harsh just catches those wings a treat........It's not perfect, I've had to lift the shadow details a little, but I was well happy with this one purely on it's rarity value.
Going to be spending the day mostly resting my spine now as it's completely kaput after yesterday's session and is more or less in complete spasm......But boy it's worth all the pain!
Thanks for looking......Ade
