I’ve always wanted to a close up of this bird and today was the day.
These birds tease me endlessly. I know that at least one hangs out very close to the house, by the water. Yet, I’ve found it very difficult to photograph one. By the time I run back in the house for the camera, he moves on. This time I think I found his secret haunt, a little further along. And not only that there are a pair of them. They were so besotted with each other they haven’t noticed me. They did up and take off when a great clumsy duck flew in and invaded their space. I did get a few pics but I would like to get closer yet. I’ll keep trying.
