Green legs and all

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.

    1. 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.
