My Supermoon shot


Dear Friends, my supermen would not be right if the cranes were not also shown, last night at about 5pm and the setting sun gave the moon an orange glow.  I was watching the cranes and just happened to get this, the cranes and the moon are very far away, til Tomorrow MJ

Black and White Cranes

Dear Friends, these sandhill cranes were only ten feet from our vehicle and were busy rooting in the mud for seafood to eat.  The mud is still clinging to their bills, now you see why they have long stout bills that don’t break when they hit a rock.  Do you like black and white treatment?  tilTomorrow MJ
