Delighted that this image has been (BWPA).

I was laying low to the ground photographing on a local pond, when I saw this jackdaw land not far ahead on the grass. They are very twitchy in my local area so I slowly turned to position the bird in my viewfinder. I was shooting with the 600 and 1.4x so the bird was pretty big in the frame, but that helped to produce the lovely subdued colours in the out of focus background.
