After walking my dog, I noticed two Sandhill Cranes in a little pond water next to a hill. I returned to the spot and sat with my 400 lens on my camera, and sat on the grassy hill watching the Sandhill Cranes with my long lens pointed in their direction. I didn’t seem to scare them. It was so peaceful watching them. I snapped a few pictures here and there.
What really amazed me was when the Cranes walked out of the water and up the hill to where I sat. They didn’t seem to mind if I was there or not. I was thrilled! They actually got so close that I could not take their picture with my long lens. Ha! I couldn’t believe what was happening.
Anyway, that was the way I started my Thanksgiving and I was so thankful to have had a close encounter with the Sandhill Cranes. Do you know what I mean?
