I just went into a swamp looking for Owls. No Owls, however mosquitoes everywhere and hungry.
The excited loud calls of a Kingfisher stopped me. They are almost never in thick swamps like this, they don’t have to be. There is plenty of water and marshes for them.
I didn’t think any of the shots would have even a hint of the bird. Spanish Moss and leafy branches were always in the way. As usual few options with going wading.
I did rule 101, took the shots.
By the time I grabbed these the mosquitoes were having a feast so I left him there.
