The Dancers

 

Dear Friends, in the fall, the Sandhill Cranes do lots of dancing, probably practicing and teaching the youngsters how to celebrate, this is my favorite from this past fall, til Tomorrow MJ01wc185dtwisconsin-dancing-cranes

Eagle Moon

 

Dear Friends, this eagle was very cooperative and so was the moon, the temps were below zero this morning so his feathers are fluffed to retain the body heat. til Tomorrow MJeagle-on-the-moon

Crane Explosion

Dear Friends, found the cranes on a cornfield and abruptly at 4pm, they all left in a huge explosion of wings and calling. The air was full (for a moment), then I was left all alone on the roadside.  Tomorrow when deer hunting opens,, they will probably leave the country for the south land. til Tomorrow MJexplosion
