    I have been out to Viera a few times in the past week. These are my findings.

    A young least bittern, still unable to fly. I found him on the road. I skirted around him and below him to get these shots.

  6. Wow what a way to show of Viera. Well done.
     
  7. Another fine series Jessie. That must be the same juvenile bittern I shot yesterday.
     
  8. Hi Jessie,

    Those are great! I really like the mirror look of that last shot. We don't get to see the juveniles and nests that much in February during the MI-x shoots.
