The Logrunner is a small bird that is very hard to photograph because it's always scratching around in the rain-forest under-growth. You almost always have to try to shoot through a variety of sticks, leaves and foliage. I got lucky with this one.

Yep ... built for scratching in the forest floor.

Another great bird set. I have to wonder though, how long does it take you to get a set like this? Are you sitting in the woods for hours and hours to get just a few shots?

Thanks Bambi :)

IG ... nope ... I just walk until I see something. Then I might some patience and hang for a bit. But if we have a long way to go and the subject isn't cooperating then I move on. Another day, another subject :)

Another nicely done set of a hard to catch species. Believe me, I know. Have sat for hours to get that perfect shot.
Looks like you may be turning into a birder yet MA ;)
