Graceful Sandhill Cranes

Without a shadow of a doubt, these beautiful Sandhill Cranes appear the most graceful when in flight.
From pecking the ground while they feed, to dancing about in the midst of hundreds of other cranes in their ritual mating dance, to stretching out their wings to lift their large bodies off the ground, to witnessing them fly overhead. Yes, these creatures are gorgeous. No doubt. Please cry uncle if you tire of my Crane images. I won't mind. Thanks to everyone for your well wishes on my post last evening. I promise I'll be back out soon on yet another photo trek. ENJOY!


  1. I think these beautiful cranes look like they're diving into the air the way their feet are held so perfectly. A crane dive!

  2. Stunning, and the new framing sets their beauty off so well,Take care, hope the infection has run its course, or as my Dad said about things like this " done its dash". Cheers, Jean.

  3. I for one would not tire of viewing these wonderful birds. Got to visit Cecilia and hunker on the edge of a cornfield as a storm approached this weekend. Your posts aided the wife and I's decision to visit as part of a trip to observe and photograph Sandhills. Thanks for sharing.

    1. Grampy so glad you got to see them. Try to get there on a sunny day if possible.

  4. This is a wonderful shot, Carol. You are becoming a real birder!

  5. I won't be crying Uncle, I love your Sandhill images! They are especially graceful in flight!
