Early morning bird photography at Clark State Lake, Kansas. 28 October 2014
I enjoyed a nice morning of bird photography with very light winds at Clark State Lake on the 28th of October. High clouds prevented some optimal light, but it was bright enough to get nice soft light and bring out some of the colors of these birds in their surrounding. I had my best luck below the Clark Lake dam where I got images of a Marsh Wren, Downy Woodpecker, Song Sparrow, and Orange-crowned Warbler:
