The photos were taken from dawn on Friday, Oct. 24 to sunset on Saturday, Oct 25. Heavy clouds and occasional mist were the norm all day Friday and Saturday morning. The sky cleared by Saturday noon so we had some sunshine when the cranes returned from the fields south of Crex in the late afternoon. My first attempts at using flash is evidenced the first few shots in the gallery. You may be able to see a little "eye shine" from the flash.
