More and more of these (my favorite bird) are migrating through and although they are spooky, I managed a few decent long distance shots last evening...

All nice shots...So sharp...but that first one has to be my favorite! Very interesting colors...how do their colors look when they aren't breeding?

Thanks Harry....

Each of the birds I shot were marked a little different. Some of them are so mottled at the moment that they look like they've got mold growing all over the darker portions of them.

Hi Sandi...

It's interesting that you noted this about their feet because to be honest...I just noticed it when I was posting these.

Thanks for the nice comments. I guess they come out nice cause I love seeing them out in their natural environment away from people and I shoot them exactly as I see them :)

awesome, especially the second one. These guys are really hard to shoot, they pop in and out of the tall grass...I love them too...!
