    Decided to park in the flooded road in the wetland and sit in the bed of the truck and wait to see what would show today. Must have been a good choice since this little guy decided to show up.

    As I was leaving the wetlands this little one was in puddle in the middle of the road. Took a shot then got him off of the road.
    Little bugger almost got me twice. lol

    That cuckoo is neat. And a good save for that wee snapper! It's a cutie (since you didn't get bit lol).
    Nicely done all around :)

    Thank you

    15 minutes. I parked right in the middle of the flood and sat with a lawn chair and tripod in the bed of the truck.........sorry.

    How did Tiny Marsh work out?

    It went pretty good. Got my Osprey shots. No herons but also got a black tern which I am not sure how they came out until I go through them.

    Remember how nice the day was when we met? As I got closer to Tiny I just saw the grey clouds ahead of me and when I got there there was no sun at all. Took some shots and then walked along another causeway and a couple hours later clear blue sky, unfortunately noon sun but went back to the nest to shoot more. All in all pretty good but next time I am going very early in the morning.
