Classic Red-winged Blackbird’s perch in between cattails

Red-winged Blackbirds are often sighted atop cattails and one of the classic shoot of this marsh bird is perch in between two cattails. This guy stood there long enough I managed to remove the extender, step back and added more perch to the frame but it just didn’t get the impact as much as this shot.
