These three had been in a corn patch at a conservation area I like to go to. I was so happy to get these shots as they are not normally in my area. Taken just a few years ago.

Very nice. You did a good job nailing the focus.

Thank you Peter. I struggle with the focus a lot it seems.

Sandhill cranes are one of my favourite. Where are you, that you see them rarely?

Thank you Lester. They were around 50 feet from the trees when I took the photo.

Really nice capture ... the darker BG tress makes the cranes really pop ..

Thank you, I like the dark green background also. Makes a nice contrast.

Always sweet to see a bird that is not usually in the area. Even better to get a picture of it. Congrats; and please send a Buff-breasted Sandpiper my way.


Keep 'em flying,

Thank you Greg_8, it is exciting to do so. Wouldn't mind having one of those sandpiper photos myself. :-)
