A gorgeous sunrise @ Cattail with ducks in flight and on the water...and God said, "Let there be light"
Never expected I would get too close to a Bobcat, but that's what happened here. Not a great image, but he was cool to watch at point blank range
The American Bittern-known for their stealth movement, very shy, skittish, normally totally camouflaged and thus rarely seen this open.
Knowing he would soon take flight, I was ready for his departure--The American Bittern in flight is a rare treat!!
The American Bittern headed for a more secluded spot, but not before he had provided a great photo opp!!
