Suddenly ...
Contest Number: 139 Contest Theme: Birds Lens: HD PENTAX-D FA 150-450mm F/4,5-5,6 ED DC AW Camera: Pentax K-3 II Shutter Speed: 1/1500s Aperture: F8

... a leave of the common reed moved against the wind and the Eurasian bittern botaurus stellaris became visible!
I was very astonished and therefore I forgot to switch to a longer shutter speed in order to minimize the ISO.
But as you can see ISO 1600 is no problem for a K-3 II.

Congrats on getting a such a clearly focussed shot of one of these, about as difficult to achieve as a clear photo of a unicorn!

Amazing how the bird blends in with its surrounding and yet is very distinct from it....

Thank you very much for your comment. Making this photo was also an international experience. I live near the crossing of three countries as Belgium, Netherlands and Germany. So there were a lot of photographers even from Brussels, Amsterdam and Cologne. What mix of languages and bird-names. )
