thanks, JJ... actually, i've seen them on the ground fairly often...they like to hunt for bugs in dead, fallen trees and stumps. this one's just getting a drink...

thanks, Bynx... no telescope, just a 150-600mm lens... and these are cropped. the first two were shot at 550mm, the last one at 300 because i was closer...
