This elusive bird came out to this tiny opening in the reeds, to preen and have a nap until was chased away by a Virginia Rail that I managed to take some shoots as well. I was the only human there.

A lovely view of this pretty species, Karl. Nice depth - almost 3D feel.

Very difficult to see this bird in open, Karl. Nice found.

Very nice-excellent look back and wonderful to see this relatively rare species, at least where I live. Love the environment.
