Cett's warbler can be
rather frustrating to photograph. In my experience it is either
skulking or turns up in full view but way too close to focus on with a
telephoto lens. A unique chance presented itself to me in March 2010
when a couple of these birds turned up on an ROV survey vessel in the
Black Sea - still skulking but no reeds to hide in!
managed to take the above picture using a flash and a hand held 400mm
lens on a moving vessel...
