A pair of Reed Warblers put the finishing touches on their nest. Please note this photo is taken at 1200mm on a DX camera from a very safe distance so as not to disturb the birds while nesting.

Focal length: 1200 mm
Shutter speed: 1/1250 sec
Aperture: F8
ISO: 2800
Notes: Early morning in difficult light and maybe not the most visually pleasing image, but it is my favorite of all taken while watching this pair. Taken at effective 1800mm, monopod for support. The early sun coming through the reeds made things difficult.
