A large weather front moved through the area early this morning and the birds where staying low out of the high winds. Their activity started to pick up late afternoon just before sunset as the winds diminished.
There wasn’t a cloud in the sky so I worked the cranes flying onto the field where they will stay for the night. I’m still working on getting that ‘killer’ panning shot just before dusk.
