A few years ago, we had a mating pair next to our lake in east Texas. Unfortunately, I never got any photos of them. Sadder still, I've not seen them return. They are really awesome.
Thank you Noel and Jeannette.
Great spotting and series :)
Wow it's ugly ;)
Wonderful series! Thanks for sharing Luis!
