These images are from my first view of Sandhill Cranes. This pair ultimately turned out to be comfortable with me photographing them. However, I didn’t know that so I got down very low at first to keep a small silhouette and not scare them.
Crawling around on my knees was not a whole lot of fun. I think it also confused the birds as to why I was flopping around like that.
When I finally stood up he went back doing ‘crane’ things.
