[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I went back to the refuge this morning. And fond another American Bittern. I watched him for about 45mins as he was caching fogs and other small critters. But I posted this shot to show how good they can blend in to there surrounding's and the colors in the wings that you don't see in the more common poses that I have posted. Thanks for looking.

Your right Tom,
They really do blend in with their surroundings. Don't you wish we could be this flexible with our body movement? I haven't been able to stand up straight and touch my toes for years.
Thanks for posting another beautiful image!

Wow! No kidding! It took me a few seconds to locate his head! Wonderful capture - great presentation.
