In Flight

This flock of American Avocets made several passes in the sunset light before settling down with the others. I liked this photo as they headed upwards, but all of the other flock-in-flight photos were disappointing, mostly because they lacked a focal point. In this one, my eye focuses on the diagonal they create in flight, not individual birds. Still learning about photographing flocks.
