It's the time of year when we watch for Sandhill Cranes, returning from their long migration and pairing off to nest. We took the back road home from physio and watched for them where we've seen them before. And sharp-eyed Mrs. F.G. spotted two of them! All of these photos are by Mrs. F.G. since she was on the same side of the car as the cranes, but I did the editing, which included a lot of cropping.
This turned out to be our best photo, a single crane stretching its neck high. We were a long way from them!
Those cranes are so elegant, well spotted, and out for a drive, so glad your days are warmer. Here, cold mornings every day now and SO dark. easter Greetings to you both, hope the bunny found your home.!!ReplyDelete
Mrs FG certainly has good eyesight. Between the two of you you got some great shots of the cranes!!ReplyDelete
I hope your day includes some chocolate.
I remember seeing them in FL during wintertime. They are definitely amazing creatures!ReplyDelete
Good eye, Mrs. F.G.!ReplyDelete
aren't they an interesting color?
Good catch, congratulations to Mrs. F. G. Wish we had them down here beyond an occasional straggler.ReplyDelete
Lovely to see these photographs.ReplyDelete
All the best Jan
Magnificent birds. I am happy that you are permitted to edit your wife's pictures. Miriam insists that she edit her own so I always have to coax her into doing it quickly.ReplyDelete
Every year I wait for the sandhills to come home. Thank you for sharing yours!ReplyDelete
I would be so thrilled to see one of these creatures.ReplyDelete
That is amazing! Well done, the both of you!ReplyDelete
I love cranes as they lazily soar for hour after hour.ReplyDelete
How fortunate you were to see and capture them as you did. Wonderful!ReplyDelete
Neat! I haven’t seen any here in Virginia.ReplyDelete
What a wonderful sighting. Mrs did well in shooting and you in editing.ReplyDelete
They are fun to see and hear! Happy Easter!ReplyDelete
Yep, they sure look like Sandhill Cranes alright.ReplyDelete
I've never seen them in the wild.ReplyDelete
