Hallo Szabo
What a beautiful image with clear details and prominent colours of this Little Bittern. The almost full framed compostion and close point of view is just great. The detail you captured in the eye and the partially reflection in the water is truly lovely. Thanks for sharing. Best regards.

Hello Jozsef,
This bird lives in my country but I've never seen it in nature. Maybe BG isn't the best but mere bird is taken perfectly.
