It has been a long while since I've posted.  Vancouver is in a bit of a freeze right now - we call it a freeze anyway.  Consequently, Rails and Soras are coming out into the open to feed.  This is an immature bird.

Very nice low perspective, great active pose with the raised foot, and excellent detail.

Nice to see those big feet-like the natural environment and a well-detailed image.

Lovely shot of this reclusive bird. I have tried many times to get them in the open, no luck. Many times I can hear them only few feet away deep into the cattails.
