[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Hello friends, I am happy to have done a
take-off flight photo of this furtive bird. :)

1/2000s f/8.0 ISO1000 85mm (35mm eq:127mm).


« A tiny heron, furtive and surpassingly well camouflaged,
the Least Bittern is one of the most difficult North American
marsh birds to spot. Despite its inconspicuousness, however,
the species can be rather common within appropriate habitat
in its breeding range. »

Hello Asbed,
What a nice pose of this Least Bittern. Excellent timing and composition. Beautiful environment. Good sharpness and fine natural colours.

hello Asbed
tu a eu de la chance de rencontrer un aussi bel oiseau, j'aime les couleurs degradées de ses ailes, toutes les parties de l'oiseau sont nettes et le decor est très joli
Passe une bonne nuit

Bonjour Asbed,

Les reflets sur l'eau sont des atouts à la composition. La prise de vue permet de voir les détails du Petit Blongios lors de son envol. La bonne luminosité met en valeur les couleurs d el'image. Bonne journée.
