American Bittern

American Bittern – Merritt Island – October 2015

“There was no one alive who did not contribute his share of mystery to the world.”- Kevin Brockmeier

Here’s an American Bittern “hiding”. They stand like this to mimic reeds – however this guy was a bit out in the open for that routine.

  1. Beautiful photo. A wonderful bird and nature. I find very difficult to photograph a bird, they always move faster than me when trying to capture an image of them … I may need more practice and patience. Great photo. Thank you. Adrian
