    Been after a decent shot of this bird for years and finally have a couple I'm pretty happy to have. Taken near a creek behind a friend's house in deep shade. ISO 500 and fill flash.

    You, Andy, are the man. Congratulations on shooting your bird, and such a nice shot, too. That calls for a frosty beverage of your choice. I'm buying.

    Don't be too critical of your work Andy, these are excellant shots. The classic positioning of the first and the unique posture of the second are very very nice. I'd be proud to have shot these.

    Thanks for looking!

    Thank you!

    Tough lighting but pretty nice when it goes well. Subject movement was my biggest challenge.


    Thanks Louis!

    Thank you very much and I'll hold you to the frosty beverage if we ever meet! :biggrin:

    Thank you Frank. Us photographers are always after the next best shot but for now I'm pretty happy with these. I just got back from scouting a new location and this was the first bird I saw. I just have to figure out how to get into position in this very swampy area.
