|Bosque del Apache is Spanish for "woods of the Apache," and is rooted in the time when the Spanish observed Apaches routinely camped in the riverside forest. Since then the name has come to mean one of the most spectacular national wildlife refuges in North America. Here, tens of thousands of birds--including sandhill cranes, Arctic geese, and many kinds of ducks--gather each autumn and stay through the winter. Feeding snow geese erupt in explosions of wings when frightened by a stalking coyote, and at dusk, flight after flight of geese and cranes return to roost in the marshes.|
The refuge is 57,191 acres located along the Rio Grande near Socorro, central New Mexico. The refuge is located at the northern edge of the Chihuahuan desert, and straddles the Rio Grande approximately 20 miles south of Socorro, New Mexico. The heart of the refuge is about 12,900 acres of moist bottomlands--3,800 acres are active floodplain of the Rio Grande and 9,100 acres are areas where water is diverted to create extensive wetlands, farmlands, and riparian forests.

It's a wonderfull picture. I would have to say that I would have lightened it up a little bit, not too much though. That's it. I still love this picture. David. Don't change anything because I say so. LOL. Happy Holidays.
Really great lighting! I find how the lighting moves from right to left extremely intriguing. As my eye moves through the scene it gets caught on the small details and reeds. Well done. Lighting and depth are what makes the pic. Thanks!
Awesome capture!! I really like the gold color spread all over the photo. Nice details. TFS.
