I have waited one year to get my first glimpse of this elusive bird and when it did come out of the reeds, the afternoon sun was there to great it head on!
This capture was taken at the Tim Jackson hide in the Leighton Moss RSPB reserve. It was some distance away, so I needed 500mm plus 1.4 converter on my 20D body. The image is also cropped slightly.
Thanks for taking a look.
