Pic of the Day

Clapper Rail, Railus longirostris: Bolivar Peninsula, Texas
     Back in November, I posted photos of Clapper Rails that I had photographed on the Bolivar Peninsula, Just east of Galveston, Texas.  I recently found this image in the lot.  I took this shot just as the rail had finished preening and then raised its feathers.   I love the look of the ruffled neck feathers and the slightly raised wings.

Nikon D800, Nikkor 500mm f4, 1/800 second @ f7.1
