Corncrake

One of the challenges with wildlife is to pick out the bird or animal from their camouflaged background! This Corncrake blends into its habitat, making it hard to shoot on film. Try to find a contrasting background and use your focus to accentuate the bird - also, try to make the bird as dominant as possible in the shot.
