This is a spot, a Florida wetlands, that has a small population of Cranes nesting every year. It’s the only place I have photographed them.
This is a safe area for them, and they know it.
Any of the Cranes will share the trail with people walking by. A comfortable distance is needed and rather than fly off they just slowly walk away into reeds.
Red facial coloring is an understatement.
Best viewed large.
