I have seen a lot of bird photos posted here but haven't seen anyone post one of these since I've been on the forum. So just to be different, here's a shot of a Limpkin that didn't seem to mind posing for me.:-)

So that is what those are called! I have a few shots of Limpkins from early on with my K100d and did not know their name. Your shot is mo' better though.

Man, that takes all the challenge out of trying to photograph a normally elusive bird. A good study, though. Lucky you.

Tim, I didn't either when I shot this one! I've lived here for 20 years and this was the first one I'd seen up close. Now I see them all the time. Got some fair shots of a mother and her three young'ns I'll have to post some time.:bye:

Hey Penolta, Thanks for the kind words Pen. I agree they can be a little shy but, I was surprised to find some of them have become somewhat tame at this park. :-)
