Little Blue Heron in the Reeds

Little Blues are, of course, easy enough to catch in the open, but I like this shot with the reeds, primarily because it seems to bring out the color of the bird, and provides some scale. Besides, I have a whole bunch of shots of LBs out of the reeds.

Zeiss PhotoScope 85FL at about 40x (1600mm equivalent). 1/220th @ ISO 50. Metered at about f5.6.

Cropped slightly in Lightroom for composition. Added Clarity and Vibrance. Blackpoint just a little right. Sharpen Landscapes preset.
