Clapper Rails are known for occasionally coming out in the open like this -- when they do, they seem to think you still can't see them. (Other rails sometimes do the same - I've seen King Rails here in Illinois that didn't seem to notice all the camera lenses.)

 Nice shot, as rails are notoriously elusive and hard to photograph. 

Not really all that elusive(especially at low tide)...we see them every time. way out on mudflats, right near the reeds and most recently a group of 2 adults and 4 chicks swimming out in the water. Clappers are definitely the most "out in the open" rails. Talk about the other rail species and that is another story.
