These tiny guys have evaded me for years, but I was recently fortunate enough to spot one, not buried in reeds to badly, and focused on eating and not running from me!

Enjoy

There will be days when you get the shot(s) you missed days, months or years before.

Beautiful light and color in these Jason. In all my trips down that way I've yet to get shots of a Least in the open. Both great shots, tough to pick a favorite.
