I stumbled across this Little Egret which was fishing from the tree bough above the stream. It occasionally dropped down to the stream and then reappear on a different part of the branch. It was no more than 15 yards away as I photographed it through the heavy foliage. The ISO was set to 640 to raise the shutter speed as the conditions were quite dull. Aperture was wide open at F/5.6, hence the suffused background. I used the 600mm lens with 1.4x TC giving a total focal length of 840mm.
The image below is a heavily cropped version of the full size image just below it.
