SWF>>>>>>Edwin Forsythe NWR

I am linking up with Skywatch Friday


These are a sequence of sunset shots taken last Friday at the Edwin Forsythe wildlife refuge.










The moon looked full and looking east the sky was a pretty pink



I really like how the reflection of the pink clouds made the water pink.



The refuge took in  lots of American Black Ducks and Snow Geese for the night.




Above is a video of the Snow geese and sounds we heard while watching the sunset.



To see more beautiful skies from around the world click on my Skywatch Friday. Thanks to the host: Sylvia, Sandy and Wren.  Thanks for stopping by to see my skies, I appreciate the visits and comments.

I hope everyone has a great weekend and Happy Birding
