Who is ruffling my feathers? (52)

Please refer to brilliant note from Gerhard on link http://www.treknature.com/gallery/Africa/South_Africa/East/Free_State/Hennenman/photo5197.htm.
This was taken near the Sandriver outside of Virginia, Free State. He was one of many in the area and I stood next to the reeds and took pictures as and when I could. Very active birds today and the wind was really blowing – that’s why his plumage is very ruffled. I used a Canon 580 EX flash to do the fill in work at about 8-10 metres away.
I have cropped a bit and a little contrast. I am sure that some of the background can be changed, but I am not good enough at that yet.
Comments most welcome. Tim
