Another of my favorite photographs. As I began the eight mile loop on the Edwin Forcythe Wildlife Refuge with my new 500mm lens, I looked out to see the beginning of a filight of hundreds of thousands of birds. I have many shots of a bird filled sky but I think this is the best of all. Another moment where luck played a role in a great image. Photo taken at Smithville, NJ.
