Sandhill Crane

A chance meeting with a few late migrant Sandhill Cranes. I didn't expect to see these guys so late. They probably forgot their maps and wouldn't ask for directions, thus, the delay...



There were 4 in the flock casually feeding not too far off the road.

I came over from At the Water and am in awe at your beautiful photographs. I am starting a blog and have been looking at pictures of other bloggers. I am getting more intimidated as every new photo blog I see has more beautiful photographs than I have ever seen. Yours are splendid. I’ll come back to look some more.

Oh that is exciting! Have you been that close before? I remember you doing a lot of stalking and early morning trips few months back and you finally got some great flight shots. These are awesome close shots!
