via the lens Loc: Northern California, near Yosemite NP
 
Taken the first week of December, Bosque del Apache and/or Gordon S. Ladd wildlife refuges near Socorro, New Mexico. Taken with a Nikon D500 and a Nikon 200-500 for the most part, but could have also been a rented Nikon 500mm PF, I did not check that when I exported. Shot wide open at faster shutter speeds. Processed in LR and could have gone to PS for additional processing. I use PS to remove unwanted things and sharpen images. I don't crop a lot but instead try to shoot for the shot but I do use transform in LR.

Very nice. I especially like the perspective on many of your shots. Not easy to get anything but "up in the sky" shots of these guys.

Thanks for posting these great shots. I am lucky to see them and listen to their voices from small dots high above on their way North. I will always treasure the haunting sound they make at twilight on the Alaskan Tundra.
