Instant FAV for me Terry! This looks more like a painting than a photo. Really beautiful and I LOVE the birds in the cloudy sky there. The finishing touch to this Oriental type of image. Lovely.

I saw one of these here in Oklahoma last fall, but I couldn't get close enough for a shot. I hadn't seen one since I was a kid in Iowa. A fave for me, too.
