Sandhill Crane - Two plus One

Posted by Bill Brown (California, United States) on 8 February 2013 in Animal & Insect and Portfolio.

This the final sandhill crane image of this series. Didn't have great weather for this outing but you have to work with what you get.

Canon EOS 7D 1/1000 second F/8.0 ISO 3200 375 mm

Yes, I'd noticed the weather was not working for you but this is a fine shot and a classic 'crane' stance they have struck for you !

@Ronnie 2¢: This image made the trip worthwhile. Most of the crane were in the middle of the fields but these guys were close to the edge.
