This's very heavily cropped, it was shot in Mallorca last October, I imagine that it must have been quite sharp to start with to allow me to crop it to this extreme..it was a long way away.
I spent the best part of an hour watching this bird waiting for it to dive for a fish...never happened.
....eventually it flew off in the opposite direction.
I've just returned from another visit and although the 10 x 20 mile round trip bike rides did wonders for these old arthritic knees, unfortunately the parcity of birds in the S'Albufera nature reserve, close enough to allow me to photograph them, proved very disappointing and I found this shot from last year by accident.
....thanks for looking ....Mike
