Dusk at Loess Bluffs - This is the third photo I posted from the same sunset at Loess Bluffs National Wildlife Refuge in Holt County Mo. near Mound City. All photos were taken within a mile of others. This was the last photo I took and taken well after sunset. The trumpeter swans were settling in for the night and the blackbirds were headed to roost. Not a bad way to spend the sunset.

The day's swan song - I spent the afternoon hours watching the nearing 1 million geese that took refuge at Loess Bluffs National Wildlife Refuge in Holt County Mo. near Mound City. The plan was to get photos of the geese a sunset but the geese flew the coop to parts unknown before the sun set. I took a quick look around refuge and found trumpeter swans basking in the warm light of the sunset. I thought, 'that will do' and returned home.
