"Aagrhk!" this bird seems to be saying.

This is a bittern, a member of the heron family. It is normally shy of humans and can be hard to spot, for it can stay absolutely still for long periods. And when it does, it looks like a dried leaf!

I was lucky to shoot this from just a few metres away, on a tree besides the lotus pond at the Japanese Gardens, Singapore.
