A male Bearded Reedling feeding on seeds of reed plumes. Quite a challenge to photograph in these strong windy conditions as they are swept from left to right and up and down all the time. They seem to have no problem keeping their focus on feeding though.
It was an overcast day and the snow on the lake bounced back the light from the 'sky softbox'. That's why the bird is so beautifully lit from below :-)
