This is beautiful, Bill. Great shot...I think about all the oportunites I had to visit the wetlands around Galt and missed out on so many because back in those days, I was not "into" photography like I am now...too bad...Another item for the bucket list I guess;-) Great job here ;-)

@Denny Jump Photo: Thanks Denny! You know, I've been in this area almost 25 years and this was my first time in that area. Then again, I have not tried to much bird photography because I didn't have a long enough lens.

very beautiful, the seemingly soft focus even makes the bird look more delicate and the grass/bushes create a great frame
