The Clandestine Assasin......Well that's what frogs and toads think Tongue Just another image of the bittern I recently captured today I'm afraid....

Won't be about for much of today, I've finally pretty well got all the preparation work done in the Living Room, just a few holes to fill here and there.....So want to crack on painting the ceiling and make a start on papering the walls.......But I'll be back on later, once my spine has had all it can take and I can no longer move Sad So I'll catch up with everyone then....Have a good day everyone, talk later....

Superb capture, not only clear of natural habitat but on ice as well, Ade. Terrific light, detail and again that smidgeon of movement blur on the hind foot as he walks so carefully - really makes it for me. Love the title. Was this taken on the Levels?

Excellent shot Ade, very nicely isolated and a different angle that really shows the markings in the plumage of the bird. Superb! Smile
