Sandhill Crane


Of the large birds I observed during my Florida trip the Sandhill Cranes were the most frequently sighted. This particular Sandhill gave me an excellent photo op as it flew close overhead.

this guy looks like he is going into a swan dive or a ballet move. Terrific shot. I love that we can see the color around his eye.
