| p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · Sandy-in-flight leg behavior (for crane nerds only!!!) |
These are terrible shots, but I learned something from them. I thought I knew that sandhill cranes always fly with their legs out behind them. Not so; they do whatever strikes their fancy at the time. Flipping through the outtakes from a recent trip I saw sandies missing a leg or two... and then I figured out what they were doing. No glorious light in these shots, sorry, but if you want to win at Socorro Springs Trivia Night, take a look.
One "normal", one tucked in
The guy behind takes the hint
Now we're both tucked
Both tucked in, one not quite as perfect... :)
