l can't tell you how long it has taken me to get a photo of a virginia rail. l'm talking years. But patience paid off yesterday. Almost got the pair. But the mate was extremely fast and disappeared to the next tuft of grass before l could push the shutter button. But this one was a little more at ease and l got a few good shots off. It caught a wee fish. You can just get a glimpse of it is the second picture. What a beautiful bird these are. You hear them often. But seeing one ,well just doesn't happen that often except for a quick glimpse as they run by in the reeds. They are very quick.
