06 Dawn in the Reeds

Os­car De­whurst, UK

I was stand­ing in the mid­dle of a reed bed on the Suffolk coast, wait­ing for a fe­male bit­tern to make one of her regular feed­ing flights back to the nest. I’d been wait­ing there since be­fore dawn, and as the sun came up it shone though the mist, turn­ing the reeds a gor­geous golden colour. I no­ticed a fam­ily group of blue tits feed­ing on the reed heads, and I pressed the shut­ter as this one took off, back­lit by the ris­ing sun.
