Another awesome morning shoot, out with Jim Glynn again. I photographed an amazing sunrise then focused my attention to some Sandhill Cranes that were gathered on a small marsh northwest of Big Salt Marsh. Later in the morning, we investigated Little Salt Marsh where we counted 18 Whooping Cranes! All these cranes took flight at once headed south out of the refuge. Jim and I chased the cranes south about 10 miles or so. I managed to get 16 Whoopers in one frame in flight -- a truly one-of-a-king shot!
