Yes
I've seen Water Rails in the ditches near the house for several years, but this particular has been frequenting a spot where it occasionally comes out in the open. I spotted it yesterday while walking the dogs, so ventured back with the camera and hunkered down in the grass til it reappeared.

Yes
Could you somehow remove or make more inconspicuous trailing stems in the background?
I have darkened them a little bit already, the ones above the bird are still a little too bright. I wouldn't want to remove them completely though
