Least Bittern and a dragonfly

July 31, 2014

Sometimes you just get lucky. I went several years trying to get my first decent shot of a least bittern. Failing miserably each time I tried. This year however was different. Not only did I get a decent shot. I managed to get a lot on several different trips.  Here is the one from my first trip.

 

Not bad right?  That's what I was thinking, I was ecstatic. I had gotten a really nice image of a very difficult bird to photograph . That is until I went back to the same location for another go at it.  This time my fortune continued to improve, the dragonfly involved, howevre, was not so lucky. Of course when you land on a predators leg, you're kind of asking for it. Check out the series of images.
