Sandhill Cranes

On Friday, I had been photographing a Robin when I noticed a Sandhill Crane out in a field.  The harsh afternoon sunlight didn’t help get the best photos, but I had a different part of the park in mind for shooting when the light got better.

Like I said, I won’t be able to pass on taking a photo just because the light isn’t good.  These cranes are using their natural camouflage to help them hide.  Had I not stopped to take pictures of the Robin, I wouldn’t have noticed them.

When they realized I had noticed them and started photographing them they stood up.  I don’t know a male from a female, but this must be their nesting site.

They joined each other and I decided I had bothered them enough and moved on.
