I was attracted to this shot as the background is the Hartbeespoortdam and this sometimes has a green tinge to it - the real view was actually quite untidy but using a 100 to 400mm at 400mm, 1/800 sec, @f5.6 created the required impact on the background and softness around the corners which works quite well. Some minor editing followed. Additional effects were added to this image which creates a more surreal look and is included under "My creative attempts" on this site.
Possibly a Common Hairtail
