I had pulled over to photograph a Northern Harrier off in the distance when I noticed this one working the fence line and coming towards me. As I was stopped, it didn't notice me and gave me a very nice close fly-by.

A sandhill crane gave us a fly-over near a site I have been observing cranes off in the distance all week. Today there was no heat haze and I discovered that the cranes I had been seeing all week were decoys!
