On a Blustery Morn

It was one of those rare blustery, overcast, wintry scenes at the Bosque yesterday morning. By mid morning the clouds had lifted and the lighting was beautiful on the birds drifting into the Farm Fields for a late breakfast. I'd wager the many photographers on the scene were getting some great shots of the cranes and snow geese feeding and frolicking in the corn.
