Blongio nain
Ixobrychus minutus

Almighty push: going to the next branch.

I was surprised the 1/1000 didn't freeze the legs. But I don't mind: it shows the motion and other parts are sharp enough.

This one is a male.

The amount of little bitterns has drastically decreased during the last decades.

Thank you for looking

Hi Jean-Marie.
Your picture is very impressive and pictured moment is wonderful. I try to shoot birds always and to catch such moment is too difficulty. Of course, shutter speed 1/1000 is too slow to freeze the movement completely. However, you are right. Such kind blurriness of the legs underlines to movement perfectly. Cropping is very good and your lens produced fine bokeh. My compliments and TFS.

Hi JeanMarie,
What a shot. The feather detail is sharp enough and the eye seemed to be your focus point which is clear. Great BG.

excellent photograph with wonderful timing. good work. tfs.
