A Rare Saturday Post: Sandhill Cranes and Ibis
I usually don’t post Saturday posts but yesterday in Florida I had an unexpected suprise, 2 Sandhill Cranes right beside the road! I parked on the shoulder expecting them to take off but they stayed and I grabbed the camera and tried to get closer, they still did’nt move. I got within 3 feet of them as they just posed and preened in the morning sun, it was unreal. I stayed a respectful distance and happily clicked away….
So there I was feeling all warm and fuzzy and moving down the road through the business park when I spotted a gaggle of Ibisis looking for breakfast, BONUS! I slowed the truck down to a stop and out came the Nikon, I only had to use the 18-200mm lens to get the shots. It was a good bird morning.
I also got 4 new flowering bushes and a new flower. Florida is pretty cool..:-)
