I took these earlier this week. Such a great bird! I love trying to get close to these guys. It's always a challenge.

Sweet series , I love these birds but they are quite skittish . Maybe get to the pond or wherever they are before sunrise and cover up in some camo and wait to get that magical closeup


A little L goes a long way.
