Haven't been getting many interesting bird shots lately, but I got lucky this afternoon and found a very cooperative Bittern.

Thanks for looking.

Wonderful set! Great job on capturing a very nice sequence of images. That bird really is camouflaged in the tall brush.

Thanks Peter. It's been a lot longer than that for me, and I really enjoyed watching this one.

There will be days when you get the shot(s) you missed days, months or years before.

I've never seen a bittern on ice! Nice!


Shoot first and ask questions later.

Thanks, Maxis. I wanted some good ones in the weeds since the natural camo is the most interesting feature of these guys.

Thanks John. It's been hanging around the eastern end of the Damonte wetlands.
