Sandhill Cranes

Thousands of Sandhill Cranes roosting on a pond line up and prepare for the morning fly out. The light was too low for me to achieve maximum depth of field so I focused on the middle of the flock rendering the majority of the birds slightly out of focus to create a soft impressionistic perspective. High ISO settings may allow the shutter speed necessary to freeze movement but increasing ISO compromises image quality and introduces noise.
