A shot I took a year ago, in Hungary. We were in a hide and these beautiful birds were nesting near by. So it was possible to record pretty much all of the goings on. This image has been in a few National and International competitions, and has done very well.

Had to send a copy away for a catalogue, which is what reminded me of its existence! So I thought you might like to see it on here.

I bet you did well in a competition with this one!
Excellent. I also admire the fact that you took a hide all the way to Hungary and could locate a good spot to watch them. Was much less lucky in Malaysia Blush
