On edge of small woods along an old road opening with prairie plants. Landing on old pine stumps and nearby plants before flying off. Moved around at the edge of the woods and opening before leaving.

Great photo!

Dang Mo, That's an excellent shot!

Thanks Gerald. It's just fun to be able to be out in the field. The lens and a little software make the difference. I think with a good tripod and a little photography education I could do a lot better.

Happy trails!
