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!
