Shot under terrible light condition. The time was about 15 minutes before sunset but the sun was behind heavy dark clouds.
Well I'm still happy as this bird is very secretive.

Karl, beautiful framing of this secretive bird within the surrounding reeds. And great job of isolating your subject. Very well done!

Karl, Not that bad considering the lighting. Good job getting the water as the bg and the framing is excellent.

Lovely composition and find Karl.
This species is so well adapted to their environment, they are near impossible to see!
