Sandhill Crane Family
We were actually done hiking, and driving toward St. Ignace in the car. A sandhill crane with two babies in tow ran across the road. Some babies! They were the size of turkeys, but mama was much larger yet. I had to stop and try for some pictures.
This is one of the babies. They hunkered down in the grass, and only popped their heads up occasionally.
I thought that I had missed any chance to get any good pictures. Mama seemed to be quickly moving away from the road, and from me.
Then, then... she turned and walked back toward me, perhaps feeling threatened. I backed off a bit, but I was armed with a zoom lens!
