Brief Directions

I-25 south of Socorro, NM about 5 mile to hiway 380 (San Antonio), turn right on hiway 1 (Old hiway 85) for a few miles to the Refuge entrance.

Description

As the Sandhills would come in to land at one of the ponds off of Hiway 1 they would often cross in front of the rising full moon. Setting both exposure and focus to manual I positioned my gear so that I could take advantage of their flight path. After more than 160 shots, I finally got the one I had envisioned. There's a lot to be said for a camera that can crank out 11 fps!
