    And I love that music track; one of my favourites artists from way back.
    Still got my vinyl copy of Trout Mask Replica. :-)

  21. Beautiful Bittern Bob! I missed a good shot of one this morning as it flew right by me, right into the reeds, where I could not longer see it:) I'll just enjoy your photo!

  22. That is one hot shot!!! They are so difficult to catch in the reeds. When an Arizonan spots a Bittern, they wet themselves. Seriously.
