I’ve been trying to make good images of Limpkins in flight over at least the last year. There are certainly enough Limpkins at the Circle B Bar Reserve that you would think this would be easy. Except the silly Limpkins are very fond of giving me butt shots. As soon as I get ready for flight shots, they start flying — away from me! So I was very excited to see a couple of them fly parallel to me yesterday morning. I was standing on the Heron Hideout trail, looking out over the marsh in sweet morning light. That’s a great place for flight shots, especially when the birds are close. This one wasn’t, but that’s what cropping is for! I still wouldn’t mind if the Limpkins would cooperate and give me more opportunities like this… :)
