Bittern Portrait

Bittern Portrait

An American Bittern posing in the grass for me, Aug. 20, 2015, at the Ridgefield NWR.

Canon 7D Mark II, 1/1600, f7.1, ISO 640, 500mm, 1:39 p.m.

Please find a video of this bird catching prey about 5 minutes after I took this shot.  For best view, set on 1080p and full screen.
