Oh These images are wonderful! Love them!
Thank you. I love being able to share them!
:-OIs that a sandhill crane? Wow! Never seen one, not even sure if they are this far north. Just...wow!!
Yes! They come to this area every Summer. They are my favourite birds. ❤
I love these birds.
I do, too. This one's mate was shy. She hid.
Great photos of your favorite bird. They live a long life in the wild. I read that they live to 20 years old. They must be tough birds.Hugs, Julia
Julia, I really adore them. They are amazing to watch. I even have written about them, both an essay, and a haiku. A pair down the road, by Bunny Meadow, had a baby! I usually see the babies when they are thigh-high to the parents. This one was duck sized! (No camera!)
Cranes are kind of comical looking, aren't they? Great pics!
They are a bit dorky, but so am I, my friend. *wink*
Those a most wonderful and made us smile!
I am happy to share them, guys!
Great photos, Annie. We love seeing the sandhill cranes when we visit Florida. :)Hugs to you, Bill and the furkids!
They do Winter there. Bill has seen them there on his trucking routes. They come here to our area every April. When I hear their call, I know it is Spring. They gather in large groups to go South every October. Their calling is loud and unique. I adore them.
My parents have a crane that stalks their fish ponds. They're pretty awesome looking.
Uh-oh! Yes, Heron, Crane, Egret, they are all smart fishermen! But, they are so beautiful.
and we iz strollin on outta heer ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~faaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa☺☺♥♥
Guys, show some respect. These guys will kick your butt! They are about 4 feet tall! *wink*
Excellent photos. XO
Thanks, Ellen. I was pleased to have this opportunity to capture him. She hid, possibly with a baby. I am respectful to not intrude. He seemed to show off a bit.
Oh my gosh, what lovely captures, you must have been so excited to catch it all! Thanks for sharing it.
I was ecstatic! I see them all the time, off of the back roads, in the farms near the marshes. But, I usually have no camera. I need to remember the camera!
Wow! What great pics!
Thanks! He is handsome, isn't he?
Such a good looking bird, and so purposeful. He knows what he's doing, even if i don't!
Beautiful birds and great photos.
Annie, these photos are incredible and so are the birds. Did you snap these photos near home? XOXO, Janet 💖
A great series of pictures... they are wonderful and interesting birds!
