That's a cool photo Rick!
When I die, I hope she doesn't sell my tools and cameras for what I said I paid for them!

Great shot Rick. I love the lighting. I remember that winter. It was awesome to see so many Great Grays and even the Northern Hawk Owl that sat in a branch right over the road.

Thanks all for the comments. This is one of my favorite top five images. It was published near full page in the Michigan Chapter of The Nature Conservancy coffee table book and it was on the cover of the Jack Pine Warbler about a year ago.

Would be nice to see a few of these again, maybe soon if the plan comes together.
