I can't decide which is most appealing...
the frog, the gorgeous Bittern, or the capture of the act itself!

This encounter with the American Bittern was a lucky catch for me while walking through the wetlands one morning.

the Bittern was in a area shaded by a kiosk of reeds which blocked out most of the sunlight and I was focusing on wildlife on the sunny side, just opposite of where the Bittern was hiding.

I happend to notice the comotion as he snagged the frog in mid-leap and I just started snapping shots as he wrestled with the frog.

I wish this encounter between the Bittern and the frog would taken place in better sunlight...but I was happy to catch the encounter anyway.

Thanks again for taking the time to to view and comment on this photo image. I appreciate your positive feedback.
