I tend to have a picture in my mind of what I consider the perfect pose for a bird. I'd photographed several male reed buntings on a suitable perch, but struggled to capture a female. Reed Buntings visit the feeders by the hide at Barnwell Country Park in spring, but not in autumn - presumably this is related to a scarcity of their preferred diet. Last March this female ventured from the ground for a few seconds, long enough for me to capture this shot, head lifted and slightly turned towards the camera - ideal!
