"By the Light of the Moon"

Four Sandhill Cranes flying in front of the nearly full moon two evenings ago. These were at the Monte Vista National Wildlife Refuge, which they frequent in the fall and spring. This photograph was taken in the last light at the end of the day, as they were flying to their roosting spot in the wetlands of this area. I was fortunate, in that the moon was totally obscured by clouds minutes later.
