these little guys usually are very hard to photograph, and get most birder-types all a-twitter just at the mention that someone saw one... they are quite reclusive, and often can be very hard to spot moving in deep cover among reeds and grasses in marshy areas. but they do present photo ops if you're in the right place at the right time. this little guy gave me about 5 seconds before he disappeared back into cover. it was about dusk, in deep shade, so this was shot at ISO1600 with my 40D and 100-400 @ 400mm...


Out where the rivers like to run, I stand alone, and take back something worth remembering...

Wow! Nice catch Rocky. I have yet to have one present itself for me to shoot.
Really great shot for ISO 1600 and fading light. Nice balance and color. Well done.
You must be all a-twitter.

Act like a person of thought.
