Little Bittern - Ixobrychus minutus - Adult Female

A marsh dweller in a lush green wetland makes for an unexpected sight in Mongolia's Gobi Desert. The water is forced to the surface by the hydrogeological impact of the dune wall at Khongoryn Els, creating an oasis that attracts numerous birds.

 

Photographed with Canon’s 800mm f/5.6 lens.
