CommentHi Kathy a re-cropped image as you requested and thank you for your comments. The reason for the original crop was to reduce the amount of the distracting main branch because the bird had inconveniently sat on the smaller branch. I do have a photo of a bird sitting right at the top of the big branch but it did not display its wings as this one had, the silvery reflection on the wings is what I have tried to emphasise. The background is pretty much blown out as the light was reflecting off the water behind it and there is nothing I can do to bring any detail back into it. Matt
