Reed Warbler


Photo Information
I could hear it. I could catch a glimpse behind the reeds. I could see it land. I could move around or stand still, no joy. Then it popped into view. Hold breath, rapid fire. Don't stop until the buffers are full. End result, one decent shot!

Been there, done that, Zed!

But certainly not with such lovely results!

Grand image, smashing bird!

Patience? I must learn this word. Frustration, impatience and accidental, they're my usual 'abilities' John. lol
