Posted by
Bill Brown (California, United States) on 6 February 2013 in Animal & Insect and Portfolio.

Captured 12 minutes after official sunrise, however the sun is still obscured by thick overcast. Shot at ISO 3200 with the 7D which is probably the upper limit of acceptability. Focal Length 400mm(35mm equiv. = 600mm)

Canon EOS 7D 1/160 second F/8.0 ISO 3200 400 mm

I always think of my local herons when looking at these cranes - but I'd know they are unrelated the moment I saw them fly !
