I hope everyone has had an enjoyable Easter Sunday! Here is one more photo from Crex Meadows in Wisconsin. We had spent a wonderful day watching primarily sandhill cranes and trumpeter swans and just before sunset this huge flock of red-winged blackbirds flew in. They landed in a tree just down the road from us. As we drove up to the tree we were driving into the sunlight, so I drove just a little past the tree in order to look back at it and have better light. When we looked back we saw the beautiful moon already high in the sky. I was photographing the birds in the tree top when one of them flew from one branch to another. I was lucky and happened to trip the shutter just as the bird was passing in the front of the moon. It's one of my favorite images from that day.
