The day was gray which does not result in pretty pictures when the world is still gray and brown, but at least I didn't get rained on.
The best sighting was two sandhill cranes. They give me a chance to get the camera on because quite often they call out as they take off.
I kind of like this long shot. Those big bodies look suspended under the wings as if using a parachute.
The great blue heron is usually silent. I was lucky to get the bird in the frame at all. It flew into a pine tree. I took a couple of pictures, but I can't even find it by enlarging the shots!
I've taken lots better pictures of both these birds, but this blog isn't all about photography, it's about seizing the gift I am given.
