I've shared a few of these silhouettes in the past and I can't help but share another one. I just love how these birds and habitat look when silhouetted against a beautiful sunrise or sunset. In this case it was sunrise and the birds were very active and happily perched up higher in the grasses so I was able to get some colorful sky in the background. I moved around a bunch to find a clear opening where the bird was framed in the grasses as well and I'm happy with how this one turned out.
