Default Finally a Least Bittern

I went to Lake Apopka Wildlife Drive on Sunday and finally got some shots of a Least Bittern. Technically not a lifer as I've seen them before but this is the first time getting decent photos of one.

"Decent photos" is the understatement of the year. These are great shots of a beautiful bird -- one that I have never seen.
