I spent the first part of this morning photographing sunrise and early landscape shots. Short lens work confirming the worth of dragging two cameras along.
The long lens was for opportunities like these, with no time to swap lens out.
I had been driving back from a dike cross roads, on another dike of course, when I spotted small groups of birds working the reeds. I almost kept going, but stopped the car where it was hidden by very tall grass and walked back.
One group turned out to be Wood Storks. The fall colors and this big bird turned out to be better than I could hope.
I had limited time, and a tiny view through the reeds. However, this big bird gave me a break, moving right into my field of view.
Fall, Wood Storks, and deserted marshes can be a photographers heaven.

Gorgeous photos Ted, this bird looks so excellent against an autumn backdrop!
Thanks Liz. Some places have that fall look, others are still green. It’s actually gotten hot during the day again 😁
Nice clicks Ted! I really like the golden background from the reeds.
Thanks. I’ve been out there a few times in the last week and everything has started to get the ‘golden’ look. About is much fall color as we can expect in marshes here.
