I'm assuming these are migrating as I've never seen any around here before. There were a total of five in the original. This is a pretty big crop.

Thanks for the comments and 10 vote! That 9 looks pretty good, too. :)

Quite a lovely image with the grays against the warm growth and what a composition. Bump.

A nice study, particularly on the ends of the wings, where the feathers give you more contrast to work with. Not completely sure that your focus is spot-on (close though), and I wonder if the image couldn't just use more contrast overall, more punch. Perhaps there are too many angles nad crossings of the birds to make for a very easy look - they eye is constantly forced to move around, never to rest.

Magnificent birds. Is it a coincidence that we have two entries with these graceful creatures or should I be jealous that two of you went together to creat these images? Very nice composition, by the way.
