Yellow Rail

Red Slough WMA; OK

I hadn't expected this opportunity at all!

I had to back up 10 feet after this bird froze after being surrounded, and not being able to get thru everyone's feet.I finally found a hole where I was mostly clear of grass, and not blocked by any of the others who could stand right over the bird and focus, my lens only focuses down to 11.5 feet.

Canon EOS 50D ,Canon EF 400mm f/5.6L USM
1/400s f/7.1 at 400.0mm iso400 full exif
