    Wonderful storytelling! Some days I feel like the Crested Caracara and someday the mockingbird!

    Absolutely it tells the story! Really wonderful.  I too have had my thinking and assumptions changed by this course, particularly the bloopers I have taken. I may need to change my editing of my photo collection.

I took all these photos from my car so as to not disturb them. The first photo was a bit of a disappointment to me as it wasn't as focused as I hoped. However, it shows their habitat and them calling out to others. Their call is distinctive and it was what always alerts me to when I am nearby them. The second I also was a bit disappointed by because of only catching the rump of one of the cranes. Then I thought, what the heck, it shows how close these two are. Finally, the last one was when I isolated the bird and made sure my focus was on the eye with the aperture wide open. It still shows the grasses surrounding it which makes it a bit messy, but it does convey the habitat of grasses and wetlands that are common to the Sandhill cranes.

    Really like the softness of the side light on the first as well as the beautiful bokeh. Great to see.

    I really like the house finch photo because you can see the bird is wet and the small streaks of rain.

The first, common yellowthroat,  and the second, sandhill crane photos were taken on an overcast day so the lighting was not as dramatic. I was more focused on exposure-light meter to prevent them from being too dark.
