A first for me! got out yesterday specifically to geta king rail and this Virginia rail. I was in the wrong place at the right time thus, no real decent king rail shots. But, this Virginia rail came by about 10 minutes later. It's amazing how close and how "tame" both seemed. As slow as this one moved around, it always stayed hidden. These are shots where the rail just popped out in the "open". Had to take off my 500mm as it was too long. 20D 100-400mm iso 200

They seem to stay so hidden they are difficult to photograph. Very nicely done..

Yeah, great shots Dennis :!::!::!:

They always look like Rabbits to me when I first see them (usually their rear ends retreating into the marsh)

Good shots Dennis! First time for me to see one of those. From the neck down, they have a duck like appearance. Handsome bird.
