I posted an open-winged view of one of these for this month in Illinois, here is a closed-wing view for comparison.

Un-cropped
Please leave this image alone, i.e. don't crop it in any manner. Thank you. If you'll notice, in it's description I mentioned it was exactly as it looked in my viewfinder and was uncropped. When it got cropped, it made that statement untrue.

 
Take Credit

That's a great picture
