Well it looks like you got the prize photo anyway! Love the setting and the fuzzy hairdo. Least Bitterns must be getting urbanized. We've had a family in a small wetland behind a big shopping mall here. The youngsters are pretty grown up, but still there.

Nice thinking Peter.  Shame others don't share your insight.  
Make your life spectacular!

A great portrait of this youngster, Peter. I love how you have worked in the bird's native habitat. Very nice image!

A lovely view among the reeds, Peter - I love that this chick has still got its baby fuzz!
