[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This Sand Hill Crane image was made outdoors on a party cloudy day with a mix of some direct sunlight and diffused light.

Because the crane was partly shaded and quickly moving its head, I dialed up the shutter speed to freeze this movement thus resulting in the fairly open aperture.
