Lots of drama with the silhouetted birds and dark scudding cloud, Donna.

Doc took my words! Yes, beautiful as always. I love the faint rays of light in the cloud, and the perspective of the birds up closer. HTD, Donna!

Thank you for all of your incredible comments. I was lucky to be at the right place, at the right time. It was very windy and the birds were loving it.
