Another from last weekend. Not much I don't like about the cranes but their landings can be pretty special.

Love the detail, framing, the light and especially the background.

Nice one, Jim. Looks like BdA evening light for sure -- everything gets very nice for a few minutes there.

Thanks Duane. Sitting around the pond and watching the light change was nearly as fun as watching the birds

Thanks Mark - I'm interested in your thoughts on the crop. I played with getting rid of the bit of terra firma in the foreground and I think I like that better - ambiguous landing but maybe the dirt is distracting too

Thanks for looking Birdie - I keep finding a few I like in the huge pile of shots from that trip.

While flying or walking, the cranes are quite graceful, but their landings can be comical.

I agree Dean, big goofy birds that sometimes make me wonder how they got to this point in history

David, I agree about the light. We were there for 3 days and each was different but all good.
