I always carry a piece of 6x6 MDF painted pink Ade and get Ron to hold it behind the bird Wink
Seriously is a reedbed about 100m away that was dieing back.

Stunning, have my award.

Have mentioned it before but I seem to know when one of your shots was taken with your old 40D, it has a clarity and quality that I don't always find with the 7D stuff.
