Really great shote. The eyes in Bitterns areuniquely positionedto focus under the "chin," so they can watch the ground with both eyes while stalking prey with the bill pointed forwards. You can see this clearly in the second photo. The only better one I have seen is a textbook photo of a "frozed" bittern looking at thecamera with both eyes while its billis pointed straight upwards!
Thanks Penolta. I love the Factoids youinclude in your comments, I looked through my other images and found this one. Next time I shoota bitternI will highlight this unique feature.

Thanks for thinking of me. The D300 is awesome. I have shooting up a storm, just not wildlife. I have also been saving my pennies for a Nikon 200-400mm f/4 and as you probably know, that's a lot of pennies. :lol:


BTW, I found this Bittern photo from 2006 that illustrates the goofy eye placement. I was laughing so hard I could hardly press the shutter.



Take care,
Steve

I just drove past "Bittern Lake" in Alberta today so it's extremely interesting that you would post this amazing and rare creature tonight. Great work, Kent, thanks for the vision.
