Leaving Before Dark, A Marsh

Night comes along real quick here. It’s not particularly difficult getting around when it does hit. It’s just easier when you can see a little.

Above is a road we use to get to the furthest open water at sunset.

This is around the time to leave the large water. It’s about 4 miles (6.5 K) to reach the main road from here. No speeding, or you may break something and have to walk.

Another reason to leave slow is the critters, they are wandering around now. In the above image the fore ground has a ‘bump’ in the water. A pair of eyes watching us leave.

These large birds flew tight together, made turns, and even pulled back to hover. Never once did they touch or even glance at the other.

This was a rare treat to be so close and photograph these big birds being so graceful.
