I do a great deal of Birdwatching at this time of year and this species is always in demand. It’s rare to be lucky enough to be so “in the right spot at the right time” and even rarer to be there with such good light.
I took this yesterday and straightaway, even though I see and photograph these birds every week, this photo is in the top ten. It just goes to show that the early bird catches the shot …! Love it!
