I walked right by this one, never noticed him until he jumped up to fly into some thicker reeds.
It happens a lot around this spot. The big open marsh/rice field is on the left as you walk. There can be anything from huge gators, to Pelican, Storks, just tons of different critters. So that’s where you watch.
It makes sense the close salt marsh on the other side will always have something that you quickly need to shoot.
This pretty bird was up and gone in an instant. I caught just these.
