2019—Sandhill Crane

Sandhill Cranes are elegant in the air, flying effortlessly from pond to field with slowly beating wings. Much of the time while we were visiting Bosque del Apache earlier in December, the skies were clear and cloudless providing an uncluttered background for this Sandhill Crane heading off to find a meal before roosting for the night. Taken with Nikon D5, 500mm PF lens.
