I was photographing this guy sitting amongst the reeds and when he decided to take off I was able to get one shot worth keeping

Thanks - they do flitter around at a pretty good speed and are fairly shy. I wouldn't normally be too happy with the photo - the bird was too close to the top of frame, but these guys are so hard to get in flight that I kept this one.
