One bittern, twice shy

Photo Information
Apologies for the obvious headline. Spent about 40 minutes staring at a couple of dark dots within the reeds at WWT Barnes, but finally they shuffled around to reveal most of their true shape. Lens: Sigma 150-500mm f5-6.3

Nice and sharp, and colours are so natural. Good use of a good lens!

Some people spend a life-time and never see one of these. Nice shot of a most elusive resident.
Best wishes,
