Hunting Island, South Carolina
Normally, when a bird is spooked they fly directly away from you. This guy spotted me before I spotted him, but instead of flying away from me, he flew around me in a wide semi-circle, allowing me to get my camera up and fire off a couple of shots. this shot was the keeper.
