Great image the Bittern is very well camoflaged.

But my eye keeps gettingdrwan to the blur on the left a bit of reed or something.Is there anyway you could clone it out maybe.I don't know.And i guess you have to take the shot when it arises so to speak.

My area is normally aviation so i don,t have the answer.I hope you do not think this is personal please as i do not wish to offend.

This is straight off the press, I have about 50 images all in 18.5MB raw files and have not had time to process them yet. Say what you feel, I'm not offended, I will have a look through them and may clone this out.

Brilliant shot who's bothered about a bit of reed , a very shy & elusive bird
