Taken this evening at Wicksteed Park at ground level into the setting sun
The bottom of the reflection has been cropped out because it fell into a patch of weed
Stunningly sharp shot
I love wildlife and when i see a great shot i just go...wooow... so woooww !!!
Nice one Adrian, really like the composition on this one..
Beautiful image, love this.
Superb detail, composition and DOF. Excellent shot.
Beautiful image. Particularly like the background - well taken. This bird is on my wanted list only hope I can get anything near this quality.
Thanks Ade and All...been trying for ages to take a decent image of one...First time that I have managed one worthy of uploading
Mind you didn't half get some funny looks from the odd dog walkers...me lying face down on the waters edge
What a great image, really good sharp lens you have. Composition is really good. Nice piece of work.
Cracking shot Ade, you caught him in a nice bit of light.
This is a fabulous image.
The sharp subject focus, the droplets, the evening light, the limited DoF, the reflection, the ripples, the colours and the droplets (worth a second mention). The whole of the reflection and you would have had perfection for me. Top work.
worth looking a bit daft for : ) superb shot.
You get used to that after a while, you want to hear some of the comments I get when I'm up to my knees in mud trying to get a dragonfly.....Some folks think I should be commited and they're probably right....lol
Ahhhhh!!!!...But I also spotted by the back weir a family of Grey Wagtails...so next available opportunity its off with tripod on the shoulder to try to capture a few of them
Superb shot Adrian, the use of the ripples and DoF and the crop, and the bird of course, make this a great image.
Wow what an image this is worthy of an award surely
great capture. Nice use of depth of field
Like the dof and how the light on the water leads off in to the distance. Would have liked to have seen the head in the reflection though.
Nice capture Adrian, glad to be no. 30 for your RC. I'd have liked just a little more of the reflection to finish it off, but great anyway. :o)
Simply brilliant, good lighting, pin sharp and well composed - well done.
A super image only slightly undercut by losing his 'other' head. But it really hardly matters when the rest is of such high quality
This is truly stunning Adrian and deserves all the attention its got and more. I love it. helen
This is great - i love the smooth waters and reflection. Well done.
What a superb shot and lovely detail, the bg is wonderful, would like to be able to get mine like that. I understand about the crop, shame.
lovely angle to this. beautiful reflection and details. well done indeed!
The background colors are very pleasing to the eye, soft, muted & totally enhance the foreground & the lovely bird.
Nice, beautiful bird and you have done it justice, Spot on! Click!!!
Well composed and beautifully captured. Looks like he has just surfaced from an underwater swim as there are still water droplets on his feahers. The presentation is excellent too.
Superb - just a shame you couldn't catch the whole reflection, damn weed thwarts us again!
Beauty of a shot,like the way you have captured it just after it has surfaced.Shame about the patch of weed but then it would have been just perfection!Well done.
Stunning capture, great detail and colour.
Good sidelighting, great low level viewpoint.
A cracking shot
I think the composition is perfect
Beautiful light and capture, excellent detail!
Cracking shot Adie, fully deserving of a RC award.
just WOW beauty
cracking wildlife shot shame about reflection but as you said there was a good reason for the crop
very well done ade
Many thanks for all of your comments on this upload
First class, a superb picture.

Wonderful shot. I must go there one evening, I only live a few miles away.
nice clear, sharp capture, guddun.
What a lovely shot! Well caught!
Wonderful image, well captured and displayed.
Good detailed bird shot Ade...the iceing on the cake would have been the whole reflection but as it is a grand crisp exposure.
What can I say - other than CLICK!!
A great exposure . Nice reflections . I got engaged in that park!!
I am really glad to see this one doing so well, really nice work Adrian.
A beautiful image, love the reflection and the ripples in the water. Super work
Excellent capture,well done.
