I agree, Karl, great shot in the open, and the warm light is sweet.

These just keep getting better and better. Love the raised foot, beautiful colors, and even a stray feather in the water.

Nice close range shot Karl! I never get lucky to see them in open area. I can hear them often.

Lovely light, pose & details. Clear view of these shy birds is a bonus

A nice pose that gives a good view of those water-walking feet, Karl. You really made the most of your sighting!
