Sandhill Cranes



I went a-Gator Huntin' this afternoon, but they were nowhere in sight. I found these two Sandhill Cranes enjoying one of the ponds in front of the hotel and followed them around for a few minutes shooting them. They acted like I was stalking them! What's up with that?

I wish I am there now. It vould be a fantastic time being surrounded by the nature. I like your blog, you do a good job, because I haven't heard about that place, so your blog helped me discover something new.

It would be sad to say it but maybe these two are looking for number three and it is where the gator is?

Still, this does make a fabulous "want to go to Florida" photo.
