Perry Lake, Kansas
I photographed this nest for several weeks in hopes of catching the babies when they fledged. This shot was taken on the day after the first chick had left the nest, and this image shows the second fledgling on the edge of the nest just moments before it left. I stood on the roof of my jeep to get a better angle on the nest.
