This was photographed with a Canon 7D using a Canon 100-400 mm. lens.
This was photographed near Plover, Wisconsin.
This was photographed at first light and is only possible for me because of the quality of the sensor and lens and the modern software to remove noise and yet maintain detail. Normally this would just get deleted but i love the tone that can only be gotten in this low of light and makes this a keeper to me. This also makes this image as unique as the subject.
