Black Vulture and Storm Clouds
Photographer: Fred Wasmer
Location: Myakka River State Park, Florida
Story: 
I was in Myakka River State Park to photograph storm clouds when I noticed a group of Black Vultures (Coragyps atratus) heading for their nightly roosting tree. They were flying overhead in groups of one or two, and at one point in their flight path were superimposed against distant storm clouds that, lit by the setting sun, were glowing in hues of orange and pink.
Digital Alterations: 
Only standard changes to tone, contrast, and color were performed. I'd like to point out that, while this photo may appear to be over-saturated, the colors are real; I actually *decreased* the saturation slightly when processing this photo.
Camera Information: Nikon D300s with 70-200mm f/2.8 lens
