After a week of continuous raining, it was still drizzling when I saw the white faced heron resting on a log. Picture taken at the Bellambi Lagoon Reserve, north of Wollongong NSW.
The lighting was very poor and wet. It was quite manageable hand-held shooting, with one hand holding an umbrella and the lens together. I was surprised to see some drizzles being captured in the shot! Smile

Excellent capture in horrible conditions.
