Sedge Wren Calling In-flight

Here's a "low percentage" shot - I was watching this Sedge Wren jumping around the reeds calling and every once in a while taking flight and zipping over to another nearby cattail perch. Inspired by some of Alan Murphy's inflight set-up captures (which this doesn't even close to!), I pre-focussed and would wait for the bird to take flight and hold down the shutter hoping to catch a flight image in focus. I love the pose in this shot, but the wren was some distance away, so it represents a pretty significant crop...
