Bittern in Flight!!!!!

By dewie    
I have been waiting for a shot of a bittern in flight all winter!! Ever sinve I saw someone else's taken at the London Wetland Centre where I go while I was away, I have been desperated to get one. Today, it finally happened! I was sitting in the Headley Hide, watching the reeds ahed with my naked eye, when I saw a bird flying towards me about 100m away. I said to the guy next to me, who was eating a packet of crisps, "Is that a bittern." I immediately picked it up in the viewfinder and as it got closer, I realised that it was!! I fired off about 10 frames before it disappeared and these are the best of them!

Please look at both versions!

Which one do you think is best?

I hope you like them!

Brilliant! How exciting for you - I'd probably be so excited I'd forget to take photographs! I think I prefer version 2, brilliantly caught! Smile
