This is a photo series I miss all the time. Here I finally caught it.
When walking along a marsh or river bank these birds stick their head above water and check to see where we are. Too close, and gone instantly. If you are not aiming right at them, with a high speed set this series never happens.
Popped up, and checking me out.
Opps, spotted me too close.
Gone in a flash.
I didn’t bother to include the blank blue water image, you got the picture (pun intended).
