|Sunset over the Causeway, Rockport, Texas, Sunday.|
|Monday morning: as we left the dock on our birdwatching boat, the moon was high in the sky.|
|Opposite the moon, the sun was just beginning to rise.|
|Shorebirds in the mudflats.|
|Kevin, the boat captain, looking over the wetlands.|
|A shorebird lit by the rising sun.|
|A pair of caracaras -- birds of prey. We saw beautiful birds during the five-and-a-half hour boat ride.|
|A whooping crane, one of three that spent the summer here. 400 more are soon expected to migrate into the area for winter.|
|Two cranes. Below the left one is an egret. Whooping cranes were almost extinct, and the flock that winters here includes|
the majority of those that survive.
Fabulous cloud formations in those sunsets. And I'm so impressed with the flying bird photos. I think that's the hardest thing to capture!
