This is such a fine looking bird captured with your strong glass. The details are fabulous and the natural setting is so beautiful in the frame. Very good exposure and details of this unique bird.

Ahmet hocam merhabalar.uzun bir aradan sonra çok güzel bir kare ile hoşgeldiniz.Kıbrıslı kuşçu arkadaşlardan da duyduğuma göre "balaban" arazide farkedilmesi en zor türlerdenmiş.Siz yine de çok nefis görüntülediniz.Tebrikler.
Hi, dear friend.
Is this handheld picture :)? Excellent work of superb lens. I like nice blurriness of the FG and BG. Precise shallow DOF and excellent sharpness of a very cute bird. Captured pose is very impressive and full of motions. First-class picture. My best wishes and Happy New Year.

A wonderful capture of the Bittern, shy bird not easy to photograph. You have taken this one from a great POV with fine clarity and natural colours against the natural BG during a short time of its emergence from the rushes.
Nice to view!
Cok tesekkür ederim dostum!
And a happy and healthy 2011 to you and your family,
