The Stretch

This Common Moorhen was doing some stretching before beginning his morning aerobics routine.  Taken at Brazos Bend state park in Texas.

Sprinting Moorhen

Made my first trip back to Brazos Bend State Park in a few months on Sat and found lots of fog but no sun.  I love when it is foggy but it helps to have the sun shining through it.  Saturday was just fog and clouds.  Tried to make the best of it by sitting on my keester for about 1.5 hrs along the bank at 40 acre lake.  Worked on getting some slow shutter speed shots of Coots as they ran by and ended up finding this enthusiastic Moorhen as well.
