An American Bittern forages for an afternoon meal along the edge of the water where the colors of bird and marsh meld into one. Even the Bittern’s funky yellow-green legs seem to mirror the changing fall colors of the cattails along the ponds edge. Camouflage is a wonderful thing.

Impressive shot. They are so hard to find, see, and then photograph. Nice 👏👏.
Thanks Ted, we were luck to just happen upon this Bittern in a location we have encountered them previously. Usually we hear them but hardly ever see them. Elusive indeed. Wishing you a wonderful day.

I was about to say the same thing as Ted. Great capture with the foot up!
