The turkey buzzard was not over the lake, but soaring over the land nearby.
No wing tips ever touched the water:
Crows are so dark, they're difficult to expose for some detail and highlights while retaining color in the bright sky above.
Really close encounter with the moon, and no - no Photoshop manipulation, the bird and moon were in exactly that relationship.
Even when I'm trying to watch for surprise overhead flybys, I try to remember to look down occasionally. I think this is a box turtle, but I never saw more than this much of it.
Finally the sun was at a low enough angle to throw some light across this crow's wings. It's a pretty specimen, in my opinion.
And a lovely foggy sunset ended the day!
