About This Shoot
Date: 1 February 2017
Location: Bosque del Apache NWR (morning) and Bernardo Wildlife Area (afternoon), New Mexico
Shoot Type: Wildlife
Rating:
Synopsis:
Third morning at the Crane Ponds for more Snow Geese and Sandhill Crane departure. I decided to hang around and shoot Northern Shoveler and Cinnamon Teal after the cranes left, with some pretty good luck. I did another late afternoon/evening shoot at Bernardo, where I got some nice shots of a rooster Ring-necked Pheasant which was something different. More Sandhill Cranes, mostly, with some Snow Geese at Bernardo again.
