Flaps Down

crane landing

Dear Friends, today i am back to posting color images. This Sandhill Crane is coming into a landing on the marsh and this is by far the best image that i have taken of this natural history moment.  Most of the time these cranes are too far away and have too much brush in front to render a good image, but with my 600 mm and the bird being within 20 yards, i was able to show this moment better than in the past, flaps down and landing.  til Tomorrow MJ
