I like the feeling of the whole skyscape moving to the right. Are these Canadian Geese?
Frank L Croston.: Greater sandhill cranes, Jacquelyn, it was at the Bosque del Apache wildlife refuge, huge flocks of them there.

A cracking image. The birds make this for me.
Frank L Croston.: Thank you, Alan, I have a couple of other shots without birds, but they make all the difference.
