Sandhill Cranes: Bug Eating Machines

The best shots I got this weekend were of a pair of Sandhills.  I ran across them at the park’s entrance.

They continued feeding while I slowly worked my way closer and into a better position to photograph.

With the sunlight positioned from over my shoulder, all I needed was for the birds to turn.

Which they did, surprisingly.  I had thought they would spook and fly away.

I stayed only a few minutes, while they continued to feed.

Harried by flies, I wanted to get my shots, but I didn’t want to disturb them too much.

Satisfied I had gotten some good shots, I left them to feed in peace.
