Yesterday the Divine Karlita and I went to the Bosque Del Apache, which is one of America's greatest places to see migrating birds. It was just astoundingly beautiful, and the best part was the sounds, the cacaphony of ducks, geese, and cranes against a background of waterfalls and wind.

The estimate was that around 15,000 Sandhill cranes were at the Refuge.

There were dozens of photographers with two to three foot paperazzi lenses on tripods...that alone was fascinating. My Canon with the built-in lens could not freeze the birds in flight at long range like the other photographers, yet allowed for some soft and lovely dusky shots like this one.

Of course the prettiest bird was Karlita...

(Although I was pretty durn cute too)
