Default Yellow Bitten

Saw this yellow bitten approaching close for a dragonfly catch in Hong Kong Park. Taken with a D200 and an f5.6 400mm manual ED Nikkor.

A similar bird over here is a Least Bittern. This is a typical stalking posture for bitterns of all sizes, but we seldom see it because they are usually hunting in dense vegetation. Nice captures - thanks for posting them.

The scientic name for this one is Ixobrychus sinensis and it is also called the least bitten here in Hong Kong. Thanks for viewing and giving comments. Pete
