On the Run at Brazos Bend
Made a trip out to Brazos Bend State park a couple of weeks ago. It was a little chilly at 39 deg and very windy which attributed to my frozen head/face. Had a hat in the car but being the intelligent person that I am, didn’t put it on. Was going to walk back to the car to get it but the sun was about to come out and I didn’t want to miss the good light. Caught several Coots running around, as usual, and had a fly over from a bald eagle, which was a first for me at Brazos Bend. Of course the Coot shots came out better so I’ll post these. Got some decent light on this one. The challenge with these guys is to catch them in mid stride and to keep their heads in relative focus while their wings are blurred to give a sense of motion.
