We are back from California and Utah, and almost finished the packing for our move back to Surf City, Long Beach Island, NJ, but things have not stopped here. When we moved to Gunnison a year ago these wonderful birds arrived en-mass but I was never able to photograph them. I was always in the wrong place, or my camera was, so I hope I would get another chance. Years ago I took a workshop in Bosque del Apache, NM, where the Sandhill Cranes winter, and I got many good photo of them in the ponds there, but I had not expected to see any again so close to home. What a treat.
I ran out on the deck and caught these three as they flew over our house. What a treat.
