Least Bittern flight

This male Least Bittern (Ixobrychus exilis) made short flight along the Bulrushes (Scirpus spp.) at the Green Cay Wetlands in Boynton Beach, Florida. The Least Bittern is the smallest member of the Heron family (Ardeidae) in the Americas. They straddle reeds to feed in water that would be too deep for other herons to wade in. Canon EOS 7D Mark II with Canon EF 400mm f/5.6 USM L lens.
