Yellow wagtail (Motacilla flava).

The Yellow wagtail is a really common bird in the marshland where I use to go birding, but kinds of pictures are the result of taking it really easy when out. One have to be alone, walk slowly, not talk, and not get carried away by the distant ospreys or harriers but rather concentrate on the smaller common birds in the close vicinity.

This particular picture is quite smashing IMO. It got third position in a photo competition on the theme 'camouflaged birds' and it also recently got the majority of the votes in the MyOlympus foum contest on the theme "Yellow".

Outstanding Jens, I have looked up the specification from the Optolyth TBS 100, man this is some equipment you are using. how do you atach this lens to you C5050 camera? This bird can not hide from you and your equipment. Good for us so we can view also those wonderfull birds.
