A couple more from our excursion to the wetlands last weekend. I was very happy to see for the first time a Least Bittern. This small heron was patiently standing in the duck weed covered water and watching out for little fish. It is absolutely amazing how far they can stretch their necks while hunting for food in the muddy waters.
