Heat Distortion

I saw some Whooping Cranes yesterday! It's difficult, sometimes, to confirm the leg band colors on cranes at a distance. Check out the heat distortion, it looks like a Monet painting.

These cranes were about 1000m from my tracking van. Despite my powerful scope, the heat waves cannot be visually breached. It's a good thing all of these birds had functional transmitters.
