Bathing belle

This is something that I have wanted to get better images of for a long time, (I didn't like the high POV of my other older shots) on Sunday it all came together when least expected.
I wasn't even in the right hide when this female Sparrowhawk appeared and dropped into the pool; I grabbed the camera, 600mm, 1.4X and extension tubes and then keeping as low to the ground as possible I headed to the pit hide and dropped in, there she was! I waited until she was busy and then slid my Canon 1DsMk3 & lens into place, 160 frames later she finished her bath and flew off to preen, and I was looking at the results, needless to say I had a very big grin !
