    I love images that include multiple birds in the frame. The techs look great. I love the background and the colors. I wish the birds were parallel to the sensor though as they seem to be just past you in this case. I also wish the wing positions were better. It's a small detail, but I'm a fan of the shadow on the wing of the lower bird. TFS

    Colors look nice. Nice light. Birds seems angled away and interesting which are the downside of this image

    Hi Dan, beautiful Sandhill Cranes, a little different colored than the resident cranes here. I agree with the comments regarding the birds angling slightly away, also the overlap is unfortunate. Wonderful Bosque background. Thank you for sharing.

    Dan, despite the noted wing angles for me this is one of the better processed shots from you recently. I love the composition even though there is some subject overlap.

    Nicely done, tfs.

    Detail looks great. Nice identical poses as well. The mountains in the background are a nice touch.

    Always love some SHC. I like the exposure and the contrast between the two tip-wise. Wish the top birds beak didn't shadow on the lower bird - but couldn't get the shot of them together without it I guess - so, that's the trade off. Nice frame! TFS. Think I know right where this was shot at there at BdA.
