I enjoyed The Handbook of Bird Photography by Markus Varesvuo, Jari Peltomaki and Bence Mate. A lot of it is not new, but it's good to be reminded, and Bence Mate especially has an innovative approach that appeals even if I don't see myself ever going as far as he has.
When writing about photographing with water he's a fan of reflections, but I'm not so sure, even when there is perfect symmetry and a 'clean' mirror image. I think they can look contrived. The top shot above is not a great example I will admit, but personally I prefer the second framing.
That said this snap from a few years ago does work I think. Shame about the distraction to the left - a case for a bit of photoshopping?
