p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · My first Sandies (11)


Believe it or not, I just saw my first Sandhill Cranes last weekend out near Lodi, CA. We went out for late afternoon, and will definitely try sunrise next time. They sure come in late when the good light is all but gone. But what sights and sounds! Now I get the pilgrimages to Bosque.

I was challenged exposing and post-processing many of these, but here are some of my first Sandie captures.

Comments and suggestions always welcome. Thanks for stopping by

Jim

Excellent work Jim! I especially like 3 & 4. There is a small group in #3 that are not at all cooperating with the general flow of things. Better have a talk with them!
