I’ll finish up my Green Island shoot with the last four images today.
It wasn’t my best day at Green Island, but anytime I can come home with some images on my card it is a good day.
I couldn’t get any closer to the Sandhill Cranes then this. My friend Andreas says that this is a normal feeding patter for them. Some will keep watch while the others forage for food.
A little further down the canal I found this lone crane standing on a mound. Don’t know what he was doing but he let me take a bunch of images and never offered to move. 🙂
I was photographing the Northern Shoveler in the foreground when the other guy came in for a landing. He is not in focus but I liked the way he stirred up the water.
Finally I found these guys hanging around perched on a dead tree. They let me get very closed before taking off. I don’t normally like to disturb wildlife if I can keep from it but I had to drive past their tree to get out of the wetlands.
Enjoy your day and be careful.
