As sunset approaches, at Ding Darling National Wildlife Refuge, the light gets beautiful. The Double-crested Cormorant stands, lone dark figure against the white snow of the White Pelicans.
A Wood Stork flies into shore, backlit against the lowering sun.
A Snowy Egret guards the shore,
and flies after any intruder, full out fury.
White Pelican take-off, centered below the lowering, glowing ball.
