Woooo. I saw this one and its mate. I was fishing at the time, went back to the truck, got the camera and tripod, and after waiting about an hour, this is all they would show of themselves.

I waded through water and muck to get to this place to setup. Fun though.

Enjoy,

lol
Well at least you got to see it
I hear them and can't find them
They do have their tell tail call. I wished I could have gotten a shot when they were both there. Would have been awsome. I had my fishing pole at the time but no camera. Anyway, fishing wasn't very good, so had fun with these fellows.

Nicely done George. The one near my house only seems to show himself when he's backlit by the morning sun and 40' up the tree, none of mine have come out nearly so clear.

Thanks John. I know just what you mean, happened to me this morning, by the time I ran to get my camera, he was gone.

Tough boogers to get.
